THE OLD AND NEW BUTLER
BY JEAN DAVIS
From Fairview to Fairview might, traditionally speaking, summarize
the history of Butler University; for the traditional roots of our college
are in a small four-room structure near Falmouth, Indiana, at Fairview in
Rush County. From the teachers of that academy was chosen, in part,
the first faculty that Butler can claim as its own. From that limited
source has risen a group that now includes eighty-three members who pre-
side over the twenty-some-odd courses of instruction.
The "Altisonant Letters"
The "old grads" look back with pleasant reminiscences to that earliest
faculty. Its members must have been like persons apart from their stu-
dents. The first president was John Young, who presided over the school
from 1855-1857. One of the most interesting was Professor Samuel K.
Hoshour, its second president, a wonderful example of an old-fashioned
scholar. Over six feet tall, he must have presented a commanding figure
as he stalked into his classrooms attired in the long shawl which he pre-
ferred to the conventional overcoat. His long solemn face belied his
reputation as a wit. Known as a great linguist, he was as well versed in
the classics as in the modern languages which he taught. He compiled a
book of unusual words, known as the "ALTISONANT LETTERS,"
wheh is said to be one of the best of its kind ever written. At one of the
Chapel services in the preparatory school of North Western Christian
University, (which was Butler's name until 1877, when it was re-named to
honor Ovid Butler, the father of President Scot Butler, and grandfather
of our present Dean of Women, Miss Evelyn Butler), President Otis A.
Burgess undertook to read to his students from this "ALTISONANT
LETTERS." In the midst of the first page, he got "stuck" on one of
these "high-sounding" words, and led his students in the merriment that
followed his mistake.
Of a different type from Hoshour was Allen R. Benton, who taught
Greek Testament, Hebrew, and Political Economy at the same time he
was president of the college, in '61-'68, and from '87-'91. His influence

Right— Ovid Butler
on his students was great, particularly in the field of etiquette, for in a
day when suave manners were the exception, his were polished. To this
same worthy assemblage of North Western University belongs William
Thrasher, a great mathematician.
Professor R. T. Brown, a distant relative of our Mr. Hilton U.
Brown, president of the Board of Directors, represented the type of pro-
fessor who becomes absorbed in the technicalities of his subject to the
exclusion of all else. It is said that one drowsy summer afternoon at
North Western Christian University, all of his students slipped out of
the window one by one, and left him droning chemistry into his long white
beard; not until the end of the hour did he become conscious that his only
audience was a long row of empty chairs. Another one of these "pre-
Irvington" faculty was W. F. Black, president from 1870-'73.
Dr. David Slarr Jordan
Among the outstanding professors of that first year in Irvington,
beginning September, 1875, was Dr. David Starr Jordan, now of Stanford
University. At that time he was teaching Botany, and many are the tales
told about him. It seems that a snake was as much at home in his pocket
as a wild-flower, and that often while he was lecturing, one of these would
stick out its head inquiringly, much to the alarm of the co-eds, and perhaps
^ this in whispers, of course), of the "eds" as well! Himself a man of
great physical strength, he thought nothing of taking his classes on ten
mile botany hikes; on such journeys, Maywood was a favorite objective.
In that day, the faculty often joined the students in a game of ball when
no other opposing team was to be had, and Dr. Jordan was often seen
enjoying this sport.
The Early Irvington Campus
It is this Butler of early Irvington days that offers the greatest con-
trast with the Butler of today in every custom and tradition of collegiate
life. Many traditions have survived, and many more have become a part
of the student life; now they are to be moved to Fairview as part of the
institution. The Administration building was for some time the only
structure on the Irvington campus. This was followed in succession by the
College Residence, Science Hall, the Gymnasium, the Engine House, and

ternoon ... all his student:

Right — "a snake was as much at

finally the Library which was built in memory of a Butler graduate, —
Bona Thompson — by her parents when she died in Europe. Miss Kath-
erine Merrill, who was first connected with the college at North Western,
seems to have been the center about which the early student life revolved.
Combining spirituality with a strong sense of fun, she meant a great deal
to the young people about her. Although dignified, and undeniably
"superior," she was easily approached, and through her ability to gain the
confidence of the big gawky boys in her English classes, she could inject
into them her own scorn of anything that approached unmanly behavior.
She always set an example of high, noble conduct. At the old Downey
home where she lived, now the Hibben home, Miss Merrill gave the occa-
sional teas and salons that were then a feature of the college social life.
The amusements of those days could not possibly be called strenuous, and
were more or less confined to spelling matches and literary society meet-
ings. For these occasions, there was no casual hailing of "the girl friend"
by "May I have a date Friday night?" Indeed no! Even after the boy
and girl had known each other some time, formal little notes were sent as
invitations, beginning on his side: "My dear Miss Blank, May I have the
pleasure of your company at the meeting of the Philokurian Society next
Friday evening?" And from the girl, even if she were all eagerness, only
a precise : "My dear Mr ...., I wish to accept with pleasure your kind
invitation for next Friday evening. . . ."
As there were no walks at school the first year the college spent in
Irvington, "dating" during rainy weather was difficult. Planks were
thrown across lots to the railroad tracks and woe be to the one who slipped
off the straight and narrow. One of the chief outdoor sports was seeing
if you could balance yourself on "no space at all" in order to walk beside
your girl on a board "that was built just for one." One note-worthy case
is on record where a fraternity man with a date was offered an umbrella
by a rival Greek who was dateless. His astonishment was great for fra-
ternity hostility in those days was so intense that it was patently expressed
on all occasions.
Now that fraternity life has broadened out with seven national and
two local men's fraternities on the campus and with twelve women's fra-

ternities, the situation is somewhat changed. Many of these organiza-
tions are planning to build new homes in and about the campus at Fair-
view. The minimum cost for such homes is to be twenty thousand dollars,
and the maximum about sixty thousand. Men's fraternities which have
bought building lots on the campus include Phi Delta Theta, Sigma Chi,
Delta Tau Delta, and Sigma Nu. The women's organizations with
similar plans are : Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Pi Beta
Phi, Delta Delta Delta, Zeta Tau Alpha, Alpha Delta Theta, Delta Zeta,
Alpha Chi Omega, and Delta Gamma. Several organizations, among
them Lambda Chi Alpha and Chi Rho Zeta, have bought lots away from
the campus on which they expect to build their fraternity houses. Such
fraternity houses will follow "Collegiate Gothic" architecture as to general
plan, but they will show whatever individuality small variations may exact.
The university architect, Mr. Thomas Hibben, visited Oxford and
Cambridge to study the college buildings there as well as many campuses
in this country. Jordan Memorial Hall, of English Gothic Architecture,
is the first of the new academic structures to be erected; it will constitute
three recitation halls in one, to be connected with towers. Close to Jordan
Hall, and near the Boulevard, will be the Men's and Women's Dormi-
tories, each housing one hundred and forty students. They are expected
to be ready for occupancy by the beginning of the 1928 fall semester.
Opposite Jordan Hall will be the three other buildings which will be used
doubtlessly for the Chapel, the Library, and the College of Religions.
Between these two sets of buildings, and facing Forty-sixth street will be
the Administration building. In keeping with the English-Gothic style of
architecture, the building materials are of Salisbury Granite, (imported
from England) and of Indiana Limestone. Even the proposed engine
house will conform architecturally with the other structures.
The Campus Site
Mr. George Kessler, who before his recent death selected the sites
for the new buildings, stated: "I believe Butler has the most beautiful site
for a campus of any University." It is fitting that the ground selected
should be typically "Hoosier" in its topography; its sloping hills, its

water-ways, and its green meadows are reminiscent of any Indiana land-
scape. Nothing is to mar the beauty of the landscaped grounds. Some
practical-minded persons have remonstrated, "But you have to have rail-
roads to bring your coal to the Power house." However, that difficulty
has been eliminated; it is planned to float the coal down White River on
barges. The city is planning a park system which will include boulevards
around the canal and White River. In addition to the trees planted in this
park system, Butler is to have Botanical gardens, an herbarium, and an
The nomenclature of the streets forms an interesting item. In Irv-
ington the streets were named either after some illustrious literary figures
or early Irvington residents. Consequently we have our "Emerson" and
our "Downey" avenues. Fairview, however, seemingly in keeping with
the whole architectural layout, has such names as "Sunset Avenue" and
"Buckingham Drives" for its streets.
Everything about the new Butler is to be orderly. Unlike some uni-
versities which have had to tear down old buildings in order to have sites
for new ones, all the buildings at Butler have been planned systematically.
The campus will be laid out like a model city. Plans are made for con-
structing a building a year over a period of fifty years.
Butler's Athletic plant will occupy forty of Butler's 264 acres. The
plant will include the field house, the gymnasium and the stadium, which
will hold 30,000 persons and can be enlarged to hold 72,000. The sta-
dium is expected to be completed for the football games at the beginning
of the fall season, and will be "up to the last minute" in every detail. We
shall at last be able to greet Illinois fellow students "in the style in which
they have been accustomed" — to use the phraseology of the day.
The athletic plant has been financed by a corporation of forty-one
prominent business men. The Athletic Committee of the Board of Trus-
tees is composed of John W. Atherton, Will G. Irwin, Hilton U. Brown,
Arthur Jordan, Emsley Johnson, Arthur V. Brown, and Peter C. Reilly.
The committee which has made possible the new field house includes Will
Irwin, John W. Atherton, Hilton U. Brown, Arthur Jordan, Emsley John-
son, and William C. Smith. At the opening of the new field house at
the Butler-Notre Dame game, Mr. Arthur V. Brown expressed the senti-
ments of this committee when he stated, in part: "No college of any pre-
tensions in these days can omit athletic features for the reason that a
sound and healthy body accompany an active mind. We believe that this
building is the last word in convenience and utility of construction. In
fact, we are told that there is in this country no similar building of as
large a capacity or superior construction." Mr. Brown paid tribute to the
untiring efforts of John W. Atherton, the financial secretary, "whose
undaunted efforts have made this whole Butler program possible."
In another way, Butler has been extending its facilities to the advan-
tage of its students. Affiliations have been made with the John Herron
Art School, the Metropolitan School of Music, the Indianapolis Teachers'
College, the Indiana College of Music and Fine Arts, and the Clare
Ann Shover Nursery School, which is part of the department of
education under Professor Richardson; it acts as a laboratory for pros-
pective primary teachers. This arrangement enables students to specialize
in subjects not offered in Butler's academic course, and at the same time
to take such courses as will enable them to receive a degree from Butler
University. This is particularly desirable for those who wish to teach, as
it offers them the advantage of college life with the opportunity for study-
ing the latest local developments in their chosen line of study. The
Indiana Law School was the first school to form any association with
Butler. Butler women students also have the privilege of taking some of
their gymnasium work at the Y. W. C. A. and at some of the Athletic
Butler City Office
Few people, even Butler students, know that besides the administra-
tive office in Irvington, Butler maintains an office downtown on the
eleventh floor of the Fletcher Savings and Trust Building. At this office,
Mr. John W. Atherton, Executive Secretary of the University, and
Mr. Wm. C. Irwin, its assistant treasurer, conduct the financial affairs of
From this office recently came an interesting financial statement.
Butler now has total assets of over $4,500,000. This sum includes the
valuation of the ground and plant at Irvington, the one at Fairview, sev-
eral student loan funds, endowment funds — in other words, all the assets,
new and old, of Butler University. The endowment to date is $1,700,000.
Such figures show how greatly the institution has grown from its
beginnings in 1850 when the Indiana Legislature granted it a charter.
The funds for that first Butler, known as North Western Christian Uni-
versity, were subscribed by citizens of Indiana and by members of the
Christian Church. As a preparatory school it opened its first session in
1853. The college of Liberal Arts was opened November 1, 1855, and
has been in continuous existence ever since. Other presidents of the Uni-
versity, not mentioned previously have been Harvey W. Everest, Scot
Butler, and Winifred E. Garrison.
A little learning is a dangerous thing;
Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian Spring;
There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely sobers us again.
"The university is a place of learning with many
.open paths to the Pierian Spring. The paths invite
you, but the drinking you must do for yourself. If
all Butler men and women would freely go to the
spring and deeply drink, they would become powerful
in combating evil and in preserving and extending the
best in Christian civilization."

COLLEGE OF RELIGION
I HE College of Religion was established as one of the constituent
colleges of Butler University by action of the Butler Board of Directors
in the Spring of 1924. The college, while under the control and manage-
ment of the University Board, is directly administered by a Dean and
Faculty of its own, acting under the immediate supervision of the Church
Committee of the Butler University Board of Directors. It has its own
special endowment fund.
The college first opened in September, 1925, occupying quarters in
the old Butler plant at Irvington. It will move as speedily as possible
to its new location at Fairview. During the session of 1927-28 the college
occupied class and office rooms in the College of Missions building,
adjacent to the Butler Campus.
Open to students of all religious faiths on equal terms, the purpose of
the College of Religion is primarily to train men and women for the
The College of Religion began its first session with a matriculation
list of thirty-eight students, which was increased to forty-eight at the
close of the year 1925-26. Of this number, forty-two were men and six
were women. There were twelve graduates and thirty-six undergraduates.
The matriculation for the second year, 1926-27, numbered eighty-four,
including seventy-three men and eleven women. The graduate students
numbered fifteen and the undergraduates sixty-nine. The enrollment
for 1927-28 is ninety-eight, including seventy-one men and seventeen
women. Of this number fifteen are graduates and eighty-three under-

ART ASSOCIATION OF INDIANAPOLIS INDIANA
OF THE JOHN HERRON ART INSTITUTE
PENNSYLVANIA AND SIXTEENTH STREETS
^TUDENTS of the Art School of the John Herron Art Institute have
the opportunity of studying with the best of Indiana artists. The in-
struction is supplemented by constant contact with the exhibitions and
objects of art shown in the Art Museum. In every community there
exists a group of young people who, through the love of the beautiful,
desire to obtain a training which will enable them either to express that
love in some definite form, or to appreciate more keenly the expression of
others. The Fine Arts Department of the Art School aims to give a
thorough training in drawing and painting from the figure and landscape.
Personal attention is given each student and encouragement given by bring-
ing him in contact with more mature groups of artists and collectors of art.
This course prepares a student to pursue his career with confidence. It
then remains for him to find the thing he can do best, or the thing that
appeals to him most, in order that he may do creative work that will
develop patronage and build up individual reputation.
Lectures on the history of painting and sculpture, as well as composi-
tion and other art subjects, are included in the work of the Fine Arts De-
Students who are working for a baccalaureate degree at Butler Uni-
versity may take fourteen semester hours work at the Art School in the
Fine Arts Department. This elective work must be distributed as follows:
Not more than four hours in history and appreciation of art, and not
more than ten hours in studio work.
Art patrons in the city have watched with interest the growth of the
school since several members of the Art Association in 1891 took over the
private art school established by William Forsyth and T. C. Steele. They
later, with the help of John Herron in 1897, organized the present John
Herron Art Institute.
One of the great assets of the school is the Museum, which is open
to all students. A valuable collection of paintings, sculpturing and objects
of art collected throughout the world is maintained. A library located in
the Museum contains 2,800 volumes on art besides current art periodicals
and literature of interest to art students.
The picture on this page shows the members of the Commercial Art
Class preparing the drawings reproduced in this edition of the Drift.
These students attend both Butler University and the Art School. The
course is planned to give the students a comprehensive knowledge of
present-day conditions in the field of commercial art and a knowledge of
the processes of reproduction. A valuable feature of this course is the
opportunity a student has in studying with professional men who are in
touch with every day problems of the commercial world.
An anonymous gift from a friend of the Art Association has made
possible the erection of a new building for the art school. Of fire proof
construction, the new building will be faced with brick to harmonize with
the museum. It is hoped to have the structure (which will provide for
250 students) ready for occupancy early next year. Paul Philippe Cret,
Philadelphia, is the architect. He designed the Indianapolis Public Library.

Increasing demand among teachers of drawing in public and private
schools for an opportunity to acquire a college degree and to have pro-
fessional training in art schools has resulted in an arrangement between
the Art School of the John Herron Art Institute and Butler University by
which it is possible to secure credit toward a Fine Arts Degree. The
curriculum is so arranged that students may attend Butler for academic
credits and the Art School for art subjects.
A training school is conducted in the Art School on Saturdays in
which the students teach under the observation of a critic. Opportunities
for observation in the public schools are also furnished. The Teachers'
Training department not only gives instruction in methods of teaching,
but also a thorough training in drawing and painting, design and other
subjects included in the Fine Arts Course. The spirit of cooperation is
constantly kept in mind, and the student teachers are taught to so plan
their work that it will be of interest to teachers who are conducting classes
in History, English and other subjects taught in the grade and high schools.
Each year a pageant is given at the Art Institute. Members of the
Teachers' Training Department assist in designing both the setting and
the costumes and take charge of certain episodes. This experience is very
valuable because art teachers in many schools are called upon to assist in
such productions in secondary and grade schools.
Membership in the Alumni Art Association is extended to all grad-
uates of the Art School. William Forsyth, long connected with Butler

INDIANA COLLEGE OF MUSIC
AND FINE ARTS
Meridian at Sixteenth Street
INDIANA College of Music and Fine Arts was established in 1907 by
Oliver Willard Pierce, an eminent concert pianist and teacher. From the
beginning he endowed the College with superior standards and personal-
ities, and, through the years that have passed since its founding, the school
has never lost this valuable and distinguishing asset.
In 1923 the College was reorganized under the direction of Mrs.
Blanche Harrington. The school was soon placed on a basis to meet the
larger educational requirements that were developing in the music world.
Added to Mrs. Harrington's directorate were Mrs. Henry Schurmann as
president, Mr. Arthur W. Mason as director, Mr. Arthur Jordan,

Mrs. Schurmann's wide recognition as a musical authority of ex-
ceptional discernment, appreciation and executive experience brings the
school into closer relations with local and state musical affairs as well as
with the National Federation of Music activities.
Mr. Mason, piano teacher of wide experience, is a leading authority
on public school music and an organizer of educational work.
Mr. Jordan, who has shown much interest in both educational and
musical affairs, is on the Board of Directors of both Butler University
and the Indiana College of Music and Fine Arts.
The members of the faculty are artists and teachers of high standing
in their particular lines of work, taking a personal interest in the advance-
ment of their students.
The curriculum has been extended and expanded to keep pace with
the progress of other ranking institutions, the educational credit rating
with other schools being fully established. The Public School Music
department offers a four year course leading to the degree of Bachelor
of Music, which is accredited in Indiana and other states. Courses lead-
ing to certificates, diplomas, artist diplomas and degrees are offered in
all departments. Languages, dramatic art and dancing are included as
separate departments. A careful supervision of students is maintained
during their musical progress.
Early in 1927 Butler University and the Indiana College of Music
and Fine Arts entered into an affiliation which affords the two schools
closer cooperation. By this arrangement students of both schools are
given an exceptional opportunity for training in music, the arts and
sciences. Educational subjects are taught by members of the Butler faculty.

CLAIRE ANN SHOVER NURSERY SCHOOL
3265 North New Jersey
^^/LAIRE Ann Shover Nursery School became affiliated with Butler
University September 1928. Butler is one of the few schools in the
country with a nursery school as a part of its educational department.
The purpose of the school is to provide a place where the small children
of people of moderate means can have scientific care, cheerful surround-
ings and happy companionship. Mrs. Emma Lieber is in charge of the
nursery school, but the direction is under Dr. W. L. Richardson. His
colleagues and students have access to the nursery school at all times.
The school was named for Claire Ann Shover, a resident of Indian-
apolis for many years, from whom a bequest made possible its beginning.
The home in which this nursery school is located has large sunny rooms,
an inclosed open air play-ground and a large porch. Children from two
to five years of age are cared for every day except Saturday, Sunday,
and holidays, from the hours of 9:30 A. M. until 4:30 P. M. They are
under the constant and expert care of trained child workers. The
schedule for the day includes playing-out-doors whenever possible — with
sand, kiddie cars, bean bags, drawing, modeling and block building.
Group work consists of songs, stories, song games, simple dance games
and rhythmic activities are added to the play. Emphasis is placed on the
development of good habits, such as obedience, attention, self-dependence,
helpfulness and cooperation. Play is followed by a short rest before
dinner, which is served at 12:30; then follows a rest period of two hours
in quiet, well-ventilated rooms — then another romp out-doors. The meals
are planned by an expert dietitian, and special attention is given to the
cultivation of health habits as related to food, play, and rest.
Such a nursery school is of great value to students taking teacher-
training because of the opportunity to study various child problems of pre-
school age, and parents are usually interested because they can see in the
Claire Ann Shover Nursery School an opportunity for scientific training
of small children.
METROPOLITAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC
Pennsylvania at North Street
METROPOLITAN School of Music is the oldest music school in the
state of Indiana, being founded in 1895. The aims and ideals of its
founders were to create in pupils a desire for knowledge and develop this
desire by education along broad lines and surrounded by a musical atmos-
phere; and to obtain the best results in the shortest possible time while
maintaining the highest of standards.
From a small beginning the Metropolitan School of Music has grown
until today it is one of the largest and most active music schools in Indiana.
Its pupils and graduates are found in nearly every town and county of the
state, and many have attained national reputation and eminence.
The school offers a concise and thorough course in musical and
dramatic instruction. It is practical and comprehensive in nature and
taught by modern and approved methods.

A board of directors — composed of Edward Nell, Hugh McGibeny
and Leslie E. Peck — administers the interests of the school. Combining
their interests and efforts toward its artistic growth, they have by their
own individual work and instruction of students contributed much to the
The Metropolitan School of Music is cooperating with Butler
University primarily for the purpose of preparing teachers and super-
visors for all grades of public school work. Through this affiliation,
which was instituted May 13, 1924, academic courses are given both at
Butler and the Metropolitan by Butler faculty members, while courses in
applied and theoretical music are given at the music school. Allegra
Stewart, assistant professor of English, and A. B. Carlile, associate
professor of Education — both of the Butler University faculty — have
conducted classes at the Metropolitan during the past year for the con-
venience of music students.
The faculty of the Metropolitan is composed of artistic teachers who
are most carefully chosen and who have proved themselves capable of
pleasing, holding, advancing and stimulating the interest of those students
placed under their guidance. This necessitates a number of years of suc-
cessful experience on the part of each faculty member. The degree of
success demonstrated by the achievements of Metropolitan students in the
realm of music shows the wisdom of this method of selection.
CENTRAL AND NORTH SCHOOL
The central building of the Metropolitan School of Music was erected
by its Board of Directors and is used exclusively by the school. There
are a number of classrooms for lectures and small recitals spacious enough
to accommodate one hundred pupils or more. This building is situated
at the corner of Pennsylvania and North Streets. The North Branch of
the Metropolitan is located at the corner of Pennsylvania and Thirty-
School of Music
MUSIC. A L FRATERNITIES
A chapter of Mu Phi Epsilon, honorary musical sorority, is located
at the Metropolitan School of Music. This organization is intended to
encourage and stimulate musical activity by providing a means of closer
association of young artists. New members are chosen on the basis of
musical talent and ability.
Alpha Sigma chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia fraternity, national
honorary musical organization for men is also located at the Metropolitan.
Its motive is to encourage and stimulate music students and musicians by
a closer bond of fellowship. Also, the fraternity is organized for the
advancement of American Music and musicians.
A number of members of both fraternities are students or former
students of Butler University.
The Central Building contains the school's concert hall — The
Odeon — which has a seating capacity of 450 and is used for lectures,
concerts, recitals, receptions, and assemblies. The stage is large enough
to permit the presentation of plays and operas and has only recently been
refitted with a new curtain and scenery. The Odeon, with the exception
of the professional theatres, has the best equipped stage of its kind in
Indianapolis, thus affording an unusual advantage to the dramatic de-
partment of the school.
The growth of the two music schools affiliated with Butler University
(the Metropolitan School of Music and the Indiana College of Music and
Fine Arts) has been so rapid that plans have been formulated for their
consolidation. Under this arrangement, which calls for the erection of
a new and modern building in the near future, it is hoped to accommodate
music students more efficiently by giving them the advantages of a large
metropolitan school of music.
TEACHERS COLLEGE OF INDIANAPOLIS
Alabama at Twenty-third
| EACHERS College of Indianapolis, which is one of the five schools
affiliated with Butler University, is accredited with having trained more
teachers holding elementary licenses than any other Indiana College. Its
growth has been considerable during the past few years, having an enroll-
ment in the past year of 1,403. The summer school of 1927 was attended
by 596 student teachers. The college prepares teachers for all of the
elementary grades. A practical example of what its work can accomplish
is seen by results obtained in the Jackson Graded School, which is main-
tained by the College and has pupils enrolled from the kindergarten to
the eighth grade.
Prominent educators from various parts of the country have ad-
dressed the student-teachers of the College during the past year. Among
these were: Dr. Mary Dabney Davis, head of the nursery-kindergarten-
Page Thirty- fou
primary department of the United States Bureau of Education; Dr.
Frederick G. Bonser, professor of education at Columbia University; Miss
Annie E. Moore, and Dr. Emma Grant Meader, also of the education
department of Columbia University. In January President Alice Corbin
Sies called a conference of prominent educators of the state for a study
of problems in curriculum revision.
Ten student leaders now form a president's council which confers
with President Sies on matters pertaining to student affairs. Thus the
students are given a voice in administering their own problems.
With the appearance of the "Collegiate," the college newspaper
which is published every two weeks, considerable interest has been aroused
in journalism among the prospective teachers. It was largely through
this effort that the Press Association of Indiana Normal Colleges, which
Prof. DeForrest O'Dell advocated and addressed, was organized at the
Teachers College this year by student representatives of state normal
Other student organizations which have been formed recently are a
scholastic club, the Beau Brummell Club, the Athletic Association and the
Dramatic Club. The College reaches the radio listener's ear every Thurs-
day evening when it broadcasts over W. F. B. M.
An endowment fund for the Teachers College of Indianapolis is
being sought by former students of the college. This endowment is to
be known as the Eliza A. Blaker Memorial Endowment in memory of
Dr. Eliza Blaker, who founded the Teachers College in 1882. Miss
Emma Colbert, dean of the Teachers College, is general chairman in
charge of the campaign, and Virgil F. Binford, business administrator, is

/^LMONG the members of the Indianapolis Bar who were
instrumental in the organization of the Indiana Law School
were Byron K. Elliott, William P. Fishback, dean of the School
until 1901; John R. Wilson, Addison C. Harris, John G. Wil-
liams, Charles W. Fairbanks and William C. Bobbs, publisher.
In addition to these members of the bar, the faculty included
Charles W. Moores, Augustus L. Mason, William F. Elliott,
John L. Griffiths and later Henry M. Dowling, Charles F. Coffin,
Louis B. Ewbank and other well known members of the bar. In
the summer of 1899, James A. Rohbach, who had been a mem-
ber of the faculty of the Law School of the State University
of Iowa for seven years, was requested to reorganize the
School, putting it on the modern basis of the case
and class instruction method. In 1901
Mr. Rohbach became Dean
of the School.
INDIANA LAW SCHOOL
Columbia Securities Building
Delaware at Ohio
INDIANA Law School was organized in 1894 for the purpose of giving
the law students of the middle west an opportunity to acquire a more
thorough and systematic knowledge of the law than has heretofore been
afforded them by any institution within easy reach of their homes. The
success attending the past thirty-four years has been highly encouraging.
The faculty of the School has been selected from outstanding and
specially qualified members of the profession actively engaged in the
practice of law. The present faculty is composed of Dean Rohbach, Noble
C. Butler, William G. White, James M. Ogden, Fremont Alford, L. Roy
Zapf, Robert N. Fulton, Howard W. Adams, Harry C. Hendrickson,
John W. Kern and Louis B. Ewbank, special lecturer.
ASSOCIATION WITH BUTLER
In the years 1899 and 1921, the Indiana Law School experienced
considerable changes in its scope and development. The School became
a part of the University of Indianapolis in 1899, and in 1921 it was closely
associated with Butler University. By this latter association the student
may complete the required course of study for a Bachelor of Arts or
Science degree at Butler University and the required course of study for
the degree of Bachelor of Laws from the Indiana Law School in six years.
Many students are availing themselves of this opportunity.
The Indiana Law School is happily situated. The city of Indian-
apolis is a recognized center of unusual opportunity. Situated near the
center of population of the United States, its cultural, commercial and
educational advantages are many. All of the State courts (from the
Supreme Court to that of the lowest jurisdiction) as well as the United
States Circuit and District Courts are in almost continuous session during
the school year. The value to the student of the knowledge of court
procedure thus procured cannot be underestimated. He not only learns
routine court practices, but also the manner of cross-examination of wit-
nesses and the practical application of rules governing the admission of
evidence and the methods of its introduction. Thus, the student is
afforded opportunities of observing and studying trial methods and styles
of argument of prominent lawyers from all parts of the country as they
are brought here by litigation.
The School maintains a good working library, consisting of the
Indiana Reports, the American Decisions, American Reports, American
State Reports, Lawyers' Reports Annotated, American and English En-
cyclopedia of Law, Encyclopedia of Pleading and Practise, Encyclopedia
of Forms, Cyclopedia of Law and Procedure, Corpus Juris, Digests and
Statutes, English Reprints, numerous English Reports and Notes, etc.
Also, the law library of the Supreme Court of Indiana, the Indiana State
Library and the Indianapolis Public Library are available to students.
at His Desk
Each of these libraries is within a short radius of the Law School,
the downtown branch of the Indianapolis Public Library being but three
blocks away. They are all open without charge and maintain reading
and reference rooms where periodicals and books of reference may be
COURSE OF STUDY
The course of study covers a period of three years. The students
are divided into three classes, each class having separate and distinct
instruction throughout the course. Recitations are so scheduled that
lectures in other classes may be attended. Those members of the Second
and Third Year classes who have pursued their studies at some other
school, or in the office of an attorney, find this arrangement of the greatest
This school not only gives to its classes separate and distinct instruc-
tion, but it has arranged the schedule of recitations in such a manner as to
devote two or three hours consecutively to each class, as the schedule
may be. Each class has a minimum of twelve hours of recitations per
week over a period of thirty-five weeks each year.
^JUITE fitting it is that the last class to graduate from the Butler of
Irvington before the old school becomes merely a memory should be the
largest Senior Class to leave the halls of the University since the school's
founding. The present class, exceeding two hundred and fifty students,
is quite a contrast to the first class of three students which graduated from
the present building. Thus has the school grown in the past seventy-three
During their four years on the campus the Seniors have innovated
several new social traditions. Theirs was the first Freshman Frolic on the
campus. This was followed by the Cotillion in the Sophomore year and
then the Junior "Prom" that set a standard for all future "Proms."
The 1927 Drift, sponsored in their junior year and edited by Joseph
Helms, won for the third consecutive time the first national prize for
college yearbooks awarded by the Art Crafts Guild.
The departing Seniors have witnessed the Corner-stone laying, which
marked the end of the Irvington Butler they knew. Graduating on the
eve of the building of a new university campus, the class of '28 completes
seventy-three years of history of the old school.

E KNOWS and he knows not that he knows," can truly be said
of the Junior. Since his entrance into the University three years ago he
has been accomplishing great things of which he is not yet aware. Along
with this the class of '29 will have the honor of being the first to graduate
from the Butler at Fairview.
The "Prom," the climax of the social year at Butler, was in no way
overshadowed by any previously given dance. With Wilma Dunkle as the
queen and the entire student body as her subjects, the affair was truly a
success. The programmes and decorations, the result of much painstak-
ing effort on the part of the committee in charge, of which Joseph Cripe
was chairman, made the dance one long to be remembered.
The second major work of the class was the publication of the Drift.
For the past three years the annual publication of the junior class has car-
ried away the first national prize. This year's book — carried out in a
futuristic design, both in the cover and illustrations — suggests a feeling
of modernism with the Butler of Fairview as its main theme.
The Junior Class contributed many outstanding members not only to
athletics but to various campus activities as well. It promises well to up-
hold the dignity of the first wearers of the cap and gown at Fairview. To
"accomplish" has been the guiding maxim of the class of '29.

^TRONG believers in "moral" victories, the Sophomores have been de-
feated in nearly every physical encounter they have had with the Freshman
class. Worsted in the preliminary class flag scraps, the Sophs soon
realized they were "in for it." However, by securing a metal flag bearing
their colors to the top of the flag pole, they were able to hold off the
yearlings for a short time.
Then, by a masterful diplomatic stroke the Sophomore leaders ar-
ranged for teams of equal size to oppose each other in the annual class
scrap. This destroyed the advantage their opponents had previously had
because of superior numbers. To make doubly certain, in case of defeat,
they eliminated all fighting and substituted a tug-of-war. Despite all these
precautions, however, the invincible rhinies were victorious.
The second year men then started out to show that their abilities lay
more in scholastic and social fields. In these respects they were much
more successful. The Cotillion, their official class dance, was held at the
Knights of Columbus Hall and was attended by a large and enthusiastic
crowd. Four Sophomores held associate editor positions on the Collegian.
Rodney Perkins was elected editor and Merle McCloud business manager
of the 1929 Drift. Others held offices in various campus organizations.

^EVEN hundred students making up the Freshman class this year were
the largest and most successful group of rhinies that ever graced the halls
of the university. Starting with the slogan, "in numbers there is safety,"
the yearlings not only kept the amateur barbers of the Sophomore class
from exercising their talents, but actually won the annual class scrap. They
were victorious in this latter event in spite of the last-minute shifting of
rules intended to give the upper classmen a better advantage.
While waiting the annual Freshman-Varsity gridiron meet, the sup-
posedly "green" yearlings amused themselves by keeping their emerald
colors tied securely to the top of the flagpole despite the sporadic raids of
the defeated Sophomores. After the triumphant class of '31 had run
rough-shod over the other football men all active opposition to the new-
comers ceased. Both the scheduled games of the Freshman squad (with
Culver Military Academy and Lake Forest) were won. The inter-class
track meet was taken by the Freshmen, and a good showing was made in
baseball as well as basketball.
With the end of such an epoch-making first year the members of the
Class of '31 are looking forward to the time when they can join the ranks
of upperclassmen and show that theirs is not a case of "beginner's luck."

GEORGE "POTSY" CLARK
Director of Athletics
Athletics have an educational value, and we
hope to promote the interest not only of the
players who take part but also of the spectators
who watch our games. We believe the new field
house and stadium will aid materially in the de-
velopment of community spirit.
George "Potsy" Clark
GEORGE "POTSY" CLARK
C7KORGE "POTSY" CLARK took over the athletic directorship in
September 1927, coming here from the University of Minnesota, where
he was assistant football coach and head baseball mentor. From his
programme of athletics and his ability as coach and director, it is axiomatic
that Butler is on its way to the forefront in athletic competition. "Potsy's"
main business is football, but besides his duties as athletic director he is
head football coach. Last spring he assisted, also, in coaching the varsity
baseball squad. A brilliant career as quarterback under Zuppke at the
University of Illinois, where he was graduated in 1916, was climaxed by
his selection as all-Conference quarter in his senior year. George Huff,
Illini athletic director, has said that Clark was one of the greatest athletes
ever at Illinois. Upon graduation he became head freshman coach at the
University of Kansas for a year, after which he joined the American
Expeditionary Forces. In the 89th Division he coached basketball, base-
ball and football. Under his tutelage and play at halfback the 89th won
the A. E. F. football championship. After the war he returned to his
alma mater as backfield coach under Zuppke and head baseball mentor.
A year later he became head football coach at Michigan State College.
From there he went again to the University of Kansas as head grid coach
and in the summer of 1926 resigned to become assistant football and
head baseball coach at the University of Minnesota. From Minnesota
Clark came to Butler.
PAUL H INKLE
Coach Clark's athletic endeavors are supported by the strongest
coaching staff of which any school in the state may boast. The foremost
member of the group is Paul V. Hinkle. Hinkle has had complete con-
trol of the destinies of the basketball squad for the past two seasons and
each year has directed his proteges to a state championship. The records
made by his teams surpass the endeavors of any collegiate group in
Hoosierdom. Not only has Hinkle gained recognition in Indiana, but
the conduct of his teams in winning the majority of scheduled contests
against the formidable opposition of Big Ten foes has gained Hinkle
fame throughout national athletic circles. Besides his duties in directing
the basketball men, Hinkle has charge of the golf team and assists Clark
with the football squad each fall. Hinkle is a graduate of the University
Page Ninety -three
Robert Nipper, Butler '26, set up an enviable career as a three-
letter athlete while attending the university. Upon his graduation Nipper
was appointed head freshman coach of basketball, football and baseball.
His appointment to the position of varsity baseball coach for 1929 was
announced recently, as well as having charge again of freshman basket-
ball and football.
Neil "Cowboy" Hyde for two years was Doc Spears' best guard
at the University of Minnesota. Last year he was engaged by Clark as
line coach of the Bulldog eleven, and the 1928 season will bring him
here for his second year.
Ralph L. Hitch, Butler '27, joined the staff of the athletic depart-
ment last September as graduate manager of athletics. He has had
charge also of publicity for that department.
Archie Chadd, Butler '28, captain of Butler's 1928 state champion
basketball team, has been selected as assistant varsity basketball and head
freshman baseball coach. He has been a two-letter man throughout his
Butler career and will probably assist Nipper with rhinie football candi-
dates this fall.
BUTLER UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF
PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND ATHLETICS
UlRECTLY responsible for the erection of the new $600,000 Butler
Field House and the Stadium is the recently organized Butler University
School of Physical Education and Athletics. This incorporated body of
forty-one Indianapolis business men and financiers, alumni and friends of
the university was formed October 12, 1927, shortly after work on the
Field House had begun. Cooperating with the university Board of
Directors and other executives, this corporation has control of Butler's
athletics. Through its efforts an expansion of the physical culture pro-
gram aiding the individual student will be inaugurated with the moving
of the university to Fairview.
Immediately upon its incorporation the school took complete charge
of the construction of the mammoth athletic plant and guaranteed com-
pletion of the Field House before the end of the 1928 basketball season
by leasing it to the Indiana High School Athletic Association. The
annual high school basketball tournament was held in March. The lease
stipulates that ten state high school tourneys, beginning in 1928, will be
played in the Butler Field House. The structure, with its seating capacity
of 15,000, was completed in time for the Notre Dame game March 7.
Since the opening for that game was informal, the Field House will be
dedicated December 21, when Purdue will meet the Bulldogs. Of field
houses in the country built primarily for basketball, Butler University
has the distinction of possessing the largest.
Concurrent with the direction of the construction of the Field House,
the incorporated body planned and arranged for the building of the
second unit of the athletic plant — the Stadium. Excavation began in
March, and it is scheduled to be in use for the 1928 football season,
which opens October 13 with Franklin playing. The day will be a fitting
first anniversary for the School of Physical Education and Athletics.
Dedication of the Stadium will take place November 10 at the game with
the University of Illinois. Expenditure for the "bowl" has been estimated
at $750,000. Its seating capacity when fully completed will be about
75,000; however, the first section, which will not be enlarged for a few
years, will seat 45,000 people, having sixty rows of seats on all sides.
The forty-one incorporators of the school are William G. Irwin,
Arthur Jordan, A. M. Rosenthal, Dr. Carleton B. McCulloch, Arthur
V. Brown, Hilton U. Brown, Frederick M. Ayres, Louis J. Borinstein,
Fred G. Appel, D. R. Sinclair, Guy A. Wainwright, Brodehurst Elsey,

man, Walter C. Marmon, Frank D. Stalnaker, Roy E. Adams, Hugh
McK. Landon, Richard Fairbanks, A. G. Snider, John E. Spiegal, Lee

HARRISON "RED" COLLIER
^_yONTRARY to the custom of previous years at Butler the election of
a football captain for 1927 was a post-season event. The leader of a
Bulldog gridiron eleven for a particular year had
been chosen hitherto at the close of the preced-
ing season. The new system called for the ap-
pointment of a game captain before each contest,
this honor being assigned to men who had done
especially good work in practices before games.
The captaincy for the season 1927 thus came
to depend more on what the prospective captain
actually had accomplished and less on what he
might accomplish during the next football season.
On the basis of his excellent record at half-back
during the three years of his activity on the
Butler varsity elevens, Harrison "Red" Collier,
of Wilkinson, was the outstanding candidate for
the honorary captaincy. His team mates showed
their appreciation of his performances by according him their unaminous

Muncie Normal: 12
Football fans received their first im-
pression of a Clark-coached machine when
Captain "Red" Collier led his teammates
to oppose the Muncie Normal eleven in
the opening game on Irwin field. Due to
the fact that the season was started a
week earlier than customary, the intense
heat proved a handicap to both teams.
Although the Muncie Teachers held the
Blue and White squad scoreless during the
first quarter, the Bulldog backs, led by
Alonzo Watford, sophomore protege of
Coach Clark's, "opened up" and pushed
three markers across the goal line in the
following period. Persistent plaving reg-
istered three more touchdowns in the third
quarter and, before the contest had ended,
Butler had accumulated a 46-12 score.
Page One Hundred
Neither a muddy gridiron nor being
outweighed by the Valparaiso football
team could stop the Bulldogs in their sec-
ond game on Irwin field and they repeated
their performance of the previous week,
this time winning by a score of 58-0.
Speed in the backfield and ability of the
linesmen to open great holes in the Val-
paraiso line were the factors responsible
for the lopsided score. Coach Clark sub-
stituted freely throughout the game in
order to give all his men an opportunity
to perform against collegiate competition.
Captain Collier and Nulf, second string
signal caller, proved to be the most adept
ground gainers, while Watford again led
the scoring with three touchdowns.
Weather conditions eliminated an aerial
attack and forced the team to depend upon
football tactics alone.
Page One Hundred and One
The Bulldogs tasted of defeat, and of
bitter defeat, for the first time, upon their
invasion of Memorial Stadium. Coach
Zuppke had his Illinois aggregation,
which were later to be crowned Big Ten
Champions, at its best when he sent
it against Coach Clark's men. The
Illini formed an outfit much too heavy
and too powerful for the Blue and White
squad to afford much opposition. In spite
of the fact that the Butler men battled at
the best of their ability throughout the
hour, the Illinois backs plunged at random
through the Butler line and skirted the
Blue end effectively for numerous gains.
The fifty-eight point margin which the
Illini held at the end of the contest came
as the result of their superiority in every
department of the game.
Page One Hundred and Two
Franklin was selected to provide the
Blue and White squad with opposition
before the Homecoming crowd and did it
so effectively that the score stood 7-7 at
the end of the contest. Early in the game,
a Franklin recovery of a fumble in Butler
territory paved the way to an early score
for the Baptists. The terrific offensive
play of Coach Clark's men was matched
by the defensive tactics of the Franklin
team and only after a determined drive
down the field in the second period were
the Bulldogs able to push across the
touchdown which tied the score. Desper-
ate attacks during the second half enabled
Butler to come within striking distance of
their goal several times. The stubborn
Franklin defensive refused to be repulsed,
however, and Butler was never able to
gain the narrow margin which separated
her from victory.
Page One Hundred and Three
A fighting and aggressive spirit had
much to do with the 25-6 defeat which
was handed the DePauw eleven on Irwin
field, October 25. Although the teams
had battled to a 6-6 tie before the end of
the first half, the offensive battle which
the Blue and White squad displayed in the
third quarter netted three touchdowns in
such quick succession that the Methodists
were left without a chance to even the
score. In the final period, DePauw's de-
fensive stiffened and withstood the Butler
attack for the remainder of the game. In
this contest, FYedenberger and Clarke
made their debut as guards in the shifted
lineup which came as a part of Coach
Clark's extensive drill after the Franklin

Sweeping end runs by Lombard's speedy
backs, who followed perfect interference,
were responsible for Butler's first defeat
of the year on Irwin field. Although
Butler opened the scoring in the first pe-
riod, when Watford crashed through from
the one yard line, following an effective
aerial attack which advanced the ball from
the twenty-two yard line, Coach Bell's
outfit tied the score before the close of
the quarter. After the Bulldogs had made
an unsuccessful bid for a second touch-
down in the third period, Fromuth punted
to Nichols who eluded all tacklers and
scored after a 54 yard run. Lombard's
third touchdown came early in the final
period, and Coach Clark immediately in-
serted a squad of substitutes whose threat
to score was cut short by the final gun.

Wabash proved to be a fit foe with
whom to mark the end of gridiron activity
on Irwin field. In spite of the fact that
the Cavemen were favored to spoil the
day's program with a misplaced portion
of the scoring, Captain "Red" Collier
scampered across the goal line twice to
give Butler a 13-6 advantage over the
Little Giants. Three minutes after the
initial kickoff, Collier received a pass and
raced fifty-five yards for the first touch-
down. Wabash carried the ball into But-
ler territory and had evened the score
before the end of the quarter. An effec-
tive aerial attack in the second quarter
placed the ball within striking distance.
A pass, Fromuth to Collier, gave the lat-
ter the opportunity to smash over the line
with the winning touchdown, the last of
his collegiate career and the last on Irwin
Page One Hundred and Si
When Coach Robert Nipper took his freshman squad to Culver for
their first game of the 1927 season, the rhinies were greeted by a snow
covered field. In spite of the weather handicap, the Bull Pups presented
a formidable attack against the Cadets and before the end of the game
were standing at the long end of the 26-12 score. Hinchman went around
the Culver right end early in the game for the first touchdown. In the
second period Cavosie got away for a forty yard run after recovering a
In the third quarter the rhinies displayed more football tactics than
are often seen in collegiate games. After Allen had carried the ball to
the two yard line on eight consecutive line plays, Hinchman plunged over
with the third touchdown. Cavosie and Davies also scored in this session.
Culver's offensive strength was at its height in the final quarter when the
Cadets scored their only points.
Similar weather conditions were encountered by the freshmen when
they played at Lake Forest Academy. The ground was hard and slick
and often it was difficult for the men to keep on their feet. Cavosie's
fifty-five yard pass in the opening period promised to pave the way
for a touchdown had it not bounced out of Crosby's arms. The only tally
of the game came in the second quarter after Cavosie ran seventy-five
yards aided by perfect interference from punt formation.

/^T THE close of the basketball activities for 1926-1927, Archie
Chadd was elected captain of the team for the succeeding season. Chadd
had been aggressiveness personified during that
season and exhibited a brand of close guarding

background as far as scoring was concerned.

^MATCHING wits and abilities with the best teams of the state and some of the out-
standing quintets of the country during the past year, the Bulldog netmen were so successful
that they carried the title of Indiana intercollegiate champions to the Butler campus for the
second consecutive season. Eight state opponents were met in fifteen contests and in all but
two conflicts the Blue and White fives bested their zealous foes.
Central Normal of Danville was the first aggregation to put to test the strength of the
Hinklemen but after the two quintets had battled on fairly even terms for the major part of
the contest, the Bulldogs spurted in the last ten minutes to swamp the Teachers by a 49-22
score. A week later, at Madison, the Butler forwards found themselves unable to connect
with the basket. Dr. Meanwell's Wisconsin squad exhibited some commendable long-range
shooting to clinch their 25-18 triumph. However, on the following night, Hinkle and his
men returned to Ft. Wayne where a 50-10 beating was administered the Concordia outfit.
Lafayette was the scene of a double bill with Purdue. The Reserves romped through
the opening contest, winning 24-19, but when the second battle of the evening had been
finished, Butler was trailing 36-27. Both teams exhibited an effective defense which resulted
in a 16-16 deadlock at the end of the first half. With only five minutes to play, Butler was
holding a five point lead. Murphy began tipping them in from under the basket and his
counters soon placed the Boilermakers out in front.
At Wabash, Crawfordsville
Paqe One Hundred and Fourteen
Muncie Normal opened the Butler home card when they raced into a five point lead
with less than five minutes to play. Only a whirlwind attack, staged in the final minutes,
was responsible for the 39-34 score at the conclusion of the tilt. At Chicago, three days later,
Butler experienced a similar situation. The Windy City team held a slight lead throughout
the contest, only to relinquish it in the last minute of play, when Chadd sent one bounding
through the hoop from the center of the floor to clinch a 25-24 victory.
Although Butler led Evansville, 11-4, at the half, steady playing enabled the Aces to tie
the score before the close of the regulation period and then to force the fray into a double
overtime contest. In the second of the extra periods, Hildebrand's four field goals assured
the Butler squad of their 38-32 victory. Franklin, keyed to stop the onslaught of the
Hinklemen, displayed an alert and aggressive attack which enabled them to play on even
terms with the visiting Bulldogs for the greater part of the contest. Butler's last minute
attack again piled up the points necessary for the 40-32 victory.
Friday, the thirteenth of January, was just another Friday excepting that it marked
the second victory of the season over Evansville. In this contest, at the Armory, Butler
found things much easier than in the previous conflict. The Bulldogs were off to an early
lead, which they held to the final gun when the score stood 33-27. DePauw proved to be
too meager in opposition for the efforts which were expended by Hinkle's team. After
At Loyola, Chicago
Page One Hundred and Fifteen
holding an eleven point lead at the half, the Blue and White forwards boosted the score
to 36-19 before the close of the game.
Danville Normal provided one of the speediest games of the season when it held Butler
to a two point lead throughout the initial period. In the final half, the quick breaking Blue
and White offensive play mounted the score to 34-25. Butler opened its February activities
by nosing Wabash out of a 28-26 decision. The Cavemen, presenting an unexpected but
effective attack, forced the Butler net snipers to their limit throughout the contest, and only
stalling tactics employed in the last three minutes of play enabled the Bulldogs to retain their
Clever passing and hall handling were aids in toppling Marquette, 23-20, on the Bulldog's
second invasion of the Badger state. Two days later, the Hinklemen met the Loyola five
on the Chicago school's floor where their flashy defense held the Windy City cagers to
six field goals. This 27-17 defeat was the first that the Loyola quintet has suffered on their
home floor since 1925.
Butler's most furious hardwood encounter came when the Blue and White met Notre
Dame on the South Bend floor. The Irish were off to an early lead, but after the Hinklemen
had connected a few times they showed signs of controlling the play. However, Notre Dame's
Notre Dame, At Field House
Page One Hundred and Sixteen
impenetrable defense held the Bulldogs to long or hurried shots and kept them trailing, 32-2+,
at the close of the contest.
Three home games finished the February schedule. All were decisive victories over
teams which had already been beaten on their own floors. Franklin was the first to
succumb, the Bulldogs holding a 29-21 verdict. Although Wabash started out much after
the same style employed at Crawfordsville earlier in the season, it was not long before the
powerful defense had smothered the basket-shooting attempts of the Little Giantsand gained
a 35-22 victory. A battle with Marquette resulted in complete submersion of the Wisconsin
rivals and meant a 53-13 game for the Hinklemen. At Greencastle, Butler tripped the
DePauw quintet, 32-27, to make a clean sweep of the games with the three traditional rivals,
Franklin, Wabash and DePauw.
Wednesday evening, March 7, Butler dedicated its new Field House at Fairview by
defeating Notre Dame, 21-13, after one of the greatest defensive battles that has ever taken
place in the Capital City. After battling for three-fourths of the hour on practically even
terms with the Irish, the fast breaking offensive tactics of the Hinklemen netted ten points
and enabled the proteges of Koegan and Hinkle to deadlock their season's hostilities.
The freshman cagers faced a full basketball schedule and won two of their four games
with state freshman foes. Franklin fell by the wayside in two contests, but DePauw and
State Normal each took a decision from Nipper's squad.

EE WILLIE" McGILL, former trainer of Bulldog athletic teams and himself a
baseball player of national fame, appeared in the role of coach at Butler for the first time
when he and Coach Clark took charge of the diamond aspirants in March, 1928. The baseball
team faced a schedule which included five contests with Big Ten teams and ten with
Indiana college nines.
Last year's team, with the exception of ex-Captain Woolgar, reported to McGill as well
as a number of promising men who held berths on last year's rhinie squad. Of the latter
group Hildebrand, Nulf, Myers and White made appearances on the varsity nine throughout
the season. Hildebrand's twirling was largely responsible for the early season victories of
the Bulldogs when, backed by the perfect fielding of his teammates, he held the batsmen of
the opposing teams to a few scattered hits.
Wisconsin put the Blue baseballers to their season's first test when the two teams met
on Irwin field, April 4, but the Big Ten batsmen succumbed to Hildebrand's twirling while
the Butler nine was busy scoring four runs. The second encounter with a Big Ten outfit
was thwarted when rainy weather necessitated the cancellation of a double header on April
13 and 14 at Lafayette.

Butler's first set back came at the hands of the University of Illinois nine when the
Illini unmercifully hit the offerings of the Bulldog moundsmen to run up a 14-1 score.
Minnesota visited Irwin field for the final Big Ten game on the Butler schedule and with
the score standing 2-2 the game was called on account of rain.
Thereafter began Butler's competition with Indiana college teams. After losing the
first two games of this group to Muncie Normal and Notre Dame, the Butler squad swept
a series of six games, two with Indiana Central and one with each of the following schools:
Indiana State Normal, DePauw, Illinois reserves and N. A. G. U.
Muncie had an easy time winning when their eleven hits, aided by eight Butler errors,
accounted for a 13-4 score. In a feature game with Notre Dame at Washington Park, the
Bulldogs succumbed to the Irish attack, 9-2, after the rally of the South Bend squad in the
fifth inning accounted for six runs on a quartet of hits and three errors.
Indiana Central invaded Irwin field May 1, and from them Butler won a 3-1 game
which started their string of victories. Hildebrand gave the University Heights team only
three hits throughout the contest, holding them scoreless after the first stanza. On the
following Saturday the Blue and White team banished the Illinois Reserves at Champaign,
5-3, with Hildebrand again working on the mound.
Notre Dame, Washington Park
Page One Hundred and Twenty-three
When the hostilities with Indiana Central were renewed, the Bulldogs added another
triumph to make it three in a row, this time winning 9-0. When DePauw played at Irwin
field, the Methodists earned seven hits, but were able to chase only one run across the
plate, and Butler squeezed out a 3-1 victory. Indiana State Normal and N. A. G. U. fell
in quick succession. The Teachers took a 3-1 beating on their own field while the local
Gymnastic Union lost an Irwin field contest when Collyer smacked one out of the ball
yard with two men on bases.
At South Bend, the Irish repeated their success of the first meeting and took a 9-3
decision from the Bulldogs after Jachym had allowed only four hits during the contest.
Hildebrand was on the mound when Indiana State Normal visited Irwin field. The
Teachers solved "Hildy's" delivery for only three hits but the outcome of the game was
not decided until the last of the ninth when the lengthy pitcher cracked a long hit to center
field fence to score the winning run.
Muncie Normal came to Irwin field and found things just reversed to what they had
been in the first battle at Muncie. The Blue and White team opened with two tallies in the
first inning and stood on the long end of the 6-0 score at the close of the game. To conclude
the season, the Blue and White squad defeated DePauw, 2-1, in a return game — making a
record of ten games won and four lost for the team.

^_^OACH NIPPER'S baseball squad spent long hours in perfecting their
game, but were able to compete in only one contest throughout the season,
thus, their single victory over the Culver nine enabled them to finish the
year with a perfect record. However, numberless victories over local
teams in practice contests helped to increase the accomplishments of the
first year men and provided opportunity for a display of their diamond
ability. Parrish and Nulf were the co-captains of the rhinie squad. The
men who received numerals were Reynolds, Hinchman, Steger, Meid,
Wolfe, Halford, Arbuckle, Maidenburg, Dean, O'Conner, Nulf and

Varsity Track Captain
I |AROLD HOLZ turned in the most worth while record of all the
junior members of the 1927 track squad and was selected to lead the
cinder team during the past season. Holz proved
to be one of the highest scorers in the dash and
hurdle events, climaxing his collegiate career by
being the only Butler man who scored any points
in the state track meet.
Besides performing on the track, Holz
earned a letter for his work as a member of the
basketball team. During the last year he per-
formed as a regular center and was one of the
high individual scorers. Holz was considered one
of the star performers who played on the Frank-
fort high school team in recent years and during
his inter-scholastic career received the distinction
of being chosen center on the all-state team.
As a two-letter athlete of more than usual merit, Holz's career on
the track and basketball floor has proved invaluable in making athletic
history at Butler in recent years.

| HE 1928 track season was more or less one of ups and downs, for
although the Blue and White squad, under the direction of Coach Potsy
Clark, won two triangular meets and dropped a like number of dual
events, it would have had a much more successful season could it have
added to its personnel two men who could win in the jumping events and
another successful weight tosser. Captain Holz, White, and Yeager per-
formed satisfactorily in the dashes and hurdles while the number of points
annexed by McCormack and George were instrumental in swelling the
Butler scores. In the field events Bugg and Thompson were the only
men who could be depended upon as point gainers.
Earlham, Butler's first opponent of the 1928 season, outclassed
Coach Clark's proteges in the majority of the field events at the Richmond
track and forced the Blue and White squad to drop the meet, 72-54,
although the Bulldogs swept the majority of the high honors in the running
events. Captain Holz won both the 100 and 220 yard dashes while
McCormack, sophomore member of the Butler team, bested the Quaker
entrants in the quarter and half mile runs. Of the remaining four firsts
which added to the Butler score, two were earned outside the races, one
when Bugg won the shot and the other when Thompson tied for first
place in the pole vault.
In the first meet on Irwin field, Butler entertained Indiana Central
and Indiana State Normal. Although the Blue and White squad led

from the first event to the last, their failing to gain points in the field
events allowed the Greyhounds to bring their total to within a fraction of
a point short of the Butler score.
Butler partook in only one relay event of National importance — the
Drake relays — and in that Holz, Yeager, White and Leet composed the
quartet which annexed third place in the half mile race.
The track squad took part in two meets at Greencastle, first in a
dual meet with DePauw and later in the Little State meet. The
Methodists trounced the Clarkmen by a lopsided score in the dual meet
when DePauw men took all the places in the field and weight events
excepting three thirds. At the Little State meet Butler won fourth place
aided by Yeager's first in the high hurdles and two second places won by
Captain Holz, one in the century dash and the other in the low hurdles.
Rose Poly and N. A. G. U. made up the opposition which met
Butler in the last meet on Irwin field. Butler won the event in a handy
style with the Engineers placing second and the N. A. G. U. athletes
trailing in third place.
The State meet at Lafayette where Captain Holz, Yeager, White,
Leet, Bugg, McCormack and George were the only Butler entrants con-
cluded the activities of the Blue and White tracksters for the 1928 season.

|~|eRMAN PHILLIPS, Butler '27, reaffirmed
his athletic eminence in qualifying for a berth on
the united States Olympic team July 5 in the pre-
liminary trials at Philadelphia. He is one of a
four-man team representing Uncle Sam in the
400-metre run and is the only Olympic entrant
carrying with him the name of Butler University.
Joe Sivak, freshman track, luminary, after qual-
ifying for the final trials at Boston, won his pre-
liminary heat in the 1,500 metre run but failed to
gain an Olympic entrance when he ran fifth in the final race, which was
won by Ray Conger in record breaking time.
Since his graduation Phillips has been running under the colors of
the Illinois Athletic Club in numerous indoor and outdoor races through-
out the country. One of his recent accomplishments was at Columbus,
Ohio, when he beat Ray Conger in a special half-mile race. "Flip," as
Phillips is intimately known, gained eminence through his winning for three
consecutive years the national intercollegiate 440-yard run, the first time
any one runner has been 440-yard champion for three successive years.
He has run nine 440-yard races under :49 in official competition and
claims that as a record. His workouts this spring and summer have been
held on Irwin Field.

As part of the annual field day between the Butler freshmen teams
and the Culver Military Academy squads at Culver, the rhinies succeeded
in defeating the Cadets on the track for the first time since the two schools
have held hostilities. Allen and Sivak led the Bullpups, annexing two
firsts; while Urbains, Jones, Cavosie, Murnan, Hurbertz and Hatfield
gained points in several events. The mile relay team composed of Fair-
child, Sivak, Gardner and Seeright bettered the Culver relay quartet.
With the rhinies showing their strength in the field events and
sweeping all places in the shot put, high jump, discus and javelin throw,
the freshman team won its second and last meet of the season from the
DePauw freshmen. Allen again led the scoring with three first places,
while the remaining members of the team scored numerous points in all the
Freshman Cross Country
Butler's only cross-country team in 1927 was made up entirely of
freshmen. They downed the DePauw varsity harriers early in the season
in a practice run when Sivak broke the tape ahead of the Methodist
runners. On Thanksgiving day the rhinie squad was entered in the annual
Y. M. C. A. meet at Louisville. Urbains led the freshmen to victory this
time while other Blue and White runners collected third, fourth, fifth
and sixth honors.

years and a junior on the squad, finished his second year on the varsity
as one of the leading tennis players in the state
and middle west. After failing to lose a single

Wilson has experienced a steady rise in
Hoosier tennis circles for the past five or six
years, having gained much popularity four years
ago, when he defeated Sandy Weiner, a protege
of William T. Tilden, in the National Clay Court
Championships held here that year. Playing on
the Ellenberger Park courts since first starting the
game, Wilson has risen to be a serious threat to
all state championship contenders. Last year he reached the semi-finals
of the City Tennis Tournament at Indianapolis, only to be defeated by
Johnny Hennessey, Davis Cup star. This year he reached the finals
against Julius Sagolowsky, former Bulldog captain.
In his two years of intercollegiate competition Wilson has yet to lose
a singles match. This year he paired with Christopher, and the two played
as number one doubles team. The pair had no difficulty in finishing the
season undefeated, including the doubles championships of the state at

f^APTAIN "TOMMY" WILSON, Orbison, Sherer, Christopher and
Chandler finished the 1928 tennis season by winning nine of their ten
matches against collegiate competition besides annexing the state cham-
pionship in both the singles and doubles events. The only blemish on their
record came when Purdue won the final set of the Butler-Boilermaker
match to win by a 4-3 score.
Two contests with the Indiana University squad were called off, and
a third cancellation dispensed with the scheduled St. Xavier match. Double
victories over Muncie Normal, DePauw and State Normal head the
Bulldog record, while Indiana Central, Cincinnati University and Franklin
each succumbed to the ability of the Butler net stars in a single contest.
Only three matches were scheduled for the first year tennis squad.
Of this number it defeated the Wabash rhinie team, tied with the Culver
quartet and then tied with the Cavemen in a second encounter. Horst,
Carrington, Bley, Sunman and Dunbar received freshman numerals.

their matches, their opposition composed some of the
most formidable collegiate aggregations in the state.
Indiana held a double victory over the Butler squad
while Purdue was victorious in a single contest. De-
Pauw lost their match at Indianapolis but evened the
score by defeating the Butler quartet at Greencastle.

PHI DELTA THETA BASKETBALL
Sigma Chi and Phi Delta Theta fought to a tie for first place in the
annual inter-fraternity tournament. Each had lost only one contest after
completing the round-robin schedule which was followed. But, when
the Sigma Chis found things too strenuous in the Greek trophy battle, the
Phi Delts won their second championship of the year.
PHI DELTA THETA FOOTBALL
The Greek organizations at Butler are anxious, of course, to gain
trophies, but the most desirable athletic award which may adorn the
mantel of any fraternity house is the cup awarded to the champion football
squad. In October the Phi Delta Theta gridders raced to year's cham-
pionship by downing the Chi Rho Zeta, Sigma Chi and Lambda Chi Alpha
teams in quick succession. The Lambda Chi team was runner up in the

Lambda Chi Alpha ran a close second to the winners, with Phi Delta

Sigma Chi showed the remaining Greeks on the campus how base-
ball should be played and in doing so won for themselves the champion-

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
)UTLER Women's Athletic Association promotes school spirit, greater
participation in athletics, and more interest in the physical education of
women students. It maintains a point system by which a woman student
participating in athletics may be awarded three distinct honors. The first
honor is a W. A. A. pin for having acquired four hundred points, the
next a monogram for seven hundred points and third a sweater for
one thousand points. In order to become a member of W. A. A. a
woman athlete must earn one hundred points and also maintain fifty ad-
ditional points for each year. The points are obtained by playing on class
and varsity teams, by entering extra gymnasium classes and by placing in
the tennis and golf tournaments.
Coach Schulmeyer, as a result of her unusual interest in promoting
women's athletics, maintains two cups to be awarded to intramural basket-
ball and volleyball teams when they have won the series three times. They
are known as the Schulmeyer cups.
The W. A. A. Staff includes: Virginia Hampton, president; Evelyn
Seward, vice-president; Bertha Green, secretary; LaRue Hale, treasurer;
Katherine Price, basketball assistant; Clara Foxworthy, volleyball as-
sistant; Elizabeth Fullenwider, tennis assistant.

PERSONNEL WOMEN'S ATHLETICS
J_JNDER the direction of Miss Louise Schulmeyer and her assistant,
Susie Harmon, women's athletics at Butler are keeping pace with the
extended athletic programme of the university. Intra-mural and class
contests have become major events with a greater number of girls par-
ticipating each season. Basketball and volleyball are the chief sports, with
swimming, track, tennis, hiking, golf and archery increasing in popularity.
Classes in folk dancing, games, drilling, and swimming are held twice
With the new gymnasium and the athletic facilities to be had at
Fairview, women's athletics will assume more importance and will take
in a larger field of sports.
Coach Schulmeyer has planned an extensive women's athletic pro-
gramme which will surpass any that Butler has ever had. Elaborate
plans have been made for the classes of instruction. Folk dancing, clog-
ging and eccentric dances will be taught. Regular classes in swimming and
diving will be held throughout the entire year. Girls will be given greater
opportunity to participate in sports and a wider field of activity in this
line will be provided. Games will be scheduled with other colleges in
Indiana and tournaments will be held. With these and other added
features, women's athletics will undoubtedly increase in popularity and
value along with the other departments of the university.
Page One Hundred and Forty-five
OMEN'S athletics at Butler University have experienced a remark-
able impetus in the past few years. Not only has the growing interest of
women students of the university contributed to the growth of the depart-
ment, but much of the credit must be given Miss Schulemeyer and her
assistant, Suzie Harmon.
An extension of the programme of women's sports now includes a
variety of activities including tennis, swimming, track and archery.
Swimming classes have been conducted for several years at the Y. M. C. A.
and local athletic clubs, where credit is given by the department. Archery
was introduced to the classes in gymnasium for the first time this spring.
An extension of this programme is planned when the university is moved
to its new location at Fairview, where the future erection of a women's
gymnasium is planned.
Besides the varied minor sports which are now offered, competition
in varsity basketball and volleyball are available to the woman athlete.
Inter-sorority games, with independent teams competing, are a part of the
W. A. A. yearly schedule.

I EN volleyball teams were organized soon after the basketball season.
The games took place every Wednesday and Friday for two months, and
each game consisted of one set which in turn was made up of three games.
The team winning two or more of the games in the set was declared the
victor of that contest. The Independent team won the series after a hard
season, with Delta Delta Delta coming in second. Katherine Price was
the captain of the victorious team. By the quick action of its players and
their unusual serving the Independent team was able to come out first
in the series. Clara Foxworthy assisted Miss Schulmeyer as the W. A. A.
Sophomore Basketball Team
l^UE to their outstanding work on the class and intra-mural teams the
following girls were selected for the varsity basketball team; Mae Deal,
Clara Foxworthy, Elizabeth Fullenwider, Katherine Price, Ruth Robinson,
Evelyn Seward, Lorene Thorne, and Dorothy Welbourn. Katherine
Price was elected captain. The varsity up to and including this season has
been a purely honorary team as it does not play any games. However,
plans have been made to compete with teams next year. Games will be
scheduled with other universities throughout the state.
Varsity Basketball: Seward, Price, Melbourn, Foxworthy, Baldauf, Thorne.

Freshman Basketball Team
lOR the second time the class of '29 won the Inter-class Basketball
Championship. The tournament consisted of a play-off of two games
between each class, the Junior's supremacy being threatened seriously only
by the Freshmen, who finished the season in the runner-up position.
Katherine Price, captain of the winning team, was the outstanding player
at all times, leading her team to straight victories. The first year players
showed unusual ability and, although they were never able to defeat the
Junior team, they gave them keen competition. Frances Boston was
captain of the Freshman team.

possession during the year 1928. Delta Delta Delta came in second in
the series. The winning team played throughout the series without losing
a single game. Their excellent pass-work, accuracy of making baskets
and superior team work, enabled them to surpass every other team in the

ERHAPS the most coveted goal for enterprising and ambitious under-
class coeds is Scarlet Quill, a senior honorary for women. Scarlet Quill
was founded in 1921 with the idea of petitioning Mortar Board in the
future and since then has stood for the highest standards in scholarship,
interest in activities and development of personality. At the end of their
junior year, any number of women, not to exceed twelve, may be chosen
on the basis of scholarship, activities and personality to perpetuate the
work and ideals of Scarlet Quill.
Under the capable direction of Jane Ogborn, president, and Mrs.
T. G. Wesenberg, faculty advisor, Scarlet Quill has contributed materially
to the development of a "greater Butler." Its most noteworthy contri-
bution is the awarding of a scholarship to the most worthy sophomore
girl for her junior year. The scholarship was given this year to Lucille
Turner, whose average was the highest in her class. A benefit bridge
party is given each year to raise money for this fund.
Scarlet Quill — in cooperation with Blue Key — has for several years
sponsored the Butler Homecoming celebration. Both organizations
choose the judges, who decide on the best float in the downtown parade,
or the most artistically decorated fraternity house.

purpose of acquainting freshmen girls with the fundamentals of college
Every spring eight Sophomore girls are chosen on the basis of activi-
ties, personality and democracy to carry on the work for the following
year. At the annual Gridiron Banquet, a razz affair held at the Columbia
Club April 9, the following girls were "spiked" with the silver and gold
ribbons of Chimes: Maja Brownlee, Bertha Corya, Betty Evans, Virginia
Flowers, Eleanor Hadd, Bonita Heft, Dorothy Lambert and Dorothy

are: vice-president, Virginia Hampton; secretary and treasurer, Helen
Before the opening of college in the fall, each girl entering for the
first time receives a letter from "Chimes" welcoming her to Butler.

PHI DELTA PHI
RGANIZED in 1920 with the essential purpose of fostering the true
and fundamental principles of democracy and good fellowship, Phi Delta
Phi has held an important place among Butler's honoraries for women.
Membership is composed of two sophomores from each sorority and
two from non-sorority women, chosen on the basis of excellence in scholar-
ship, womanliness and service. In keeping with its idea of promoting good
fellowship among Butler women, it sponsors an all-coed event each year.
This is the Kid Kaper, first given in 1921, which was held this year on
April 25 in the gym. All girls in the school are invited to come dressed
as children. Lollypops — rompers — short socks — pigtails and hair bows
are quite the fashion, as are the latest dance steps. This party is always
one of Butler's gayest, for every girl seems to enjoy living over her child-
hood days at least for one evening.

^_yOMPOSED of freshmen and sophomore women, Scarf Club — an
honorary organization — was founded in 1921 at Butler with the purpose
of promoting good fellowship and cultural pursuits and of bringing about
increased student body support of campus activities. Membership is lim-
ited to one girl from each fraternity and an equal number of non-fraternity
girls selected on a basis of significant participation in school activities,
spirit of cooperation, school loyalty and leadership.
The club holds various social functions throughout the year. Two of
these are given for all freshmen girls. This year the first was a tea in
the fall, and the second was a St. Patrick's tea dance held at the dormitory.
For several years the girls have helped with the May Day festivities.
Dressed in white, no matter what the thermometer may register nor what
the color of the sky may be, they serve the May Day breakfast out of
doors. At Christmas time the girls do charity work among the needy of
the city. Their well-filled baskets bring cheer to many homes during the

THETA SIGMA PHI
^OUTSTANDING ability displayed by women in journalism is honored
by election to membership in Theta Sigma Phi, national honorary pro-
fessional journalistic fraternity for women. Pledge ribbons are lavender
and green, tied around a pen, which is in the form of a gold matrix.
In March, 1927, Alpha Iota chapter of Theta Sigma Phi was in-
stalled at Butler by Miss Sara L. Lockwood, national president. Before
its installation, the organization was known as Scribblers Club. Next
fall the Theta Sigs are planning to give their first Matrix table, an
elaborate formal function at which important writers are guests and
speakers for the occasion. Other guests include faculty and prominent
students around school. Every Theta Sigma Phi chapter is expected to
hold a Matrix table each year.
All Theta Sigs are working or have done work on the Collegian at
some time. Those who have been busy with other newspaper work this
year are: Margaret Elrod, Jean Davis, and Louise Eleanor Ross, all of
whom are writing for local publications.

SIGMA DELTA CHI
'ROFESSIONAL men's journalism fraternity, Sigma Delta Chi, was
organized at DePauw in 1909 and founded on the local campus in 1926.
Since its formation at Butler the fraternity has fostered and aided the
remarkable work being done in the journalism field at the university.
Two special editions, the twenty-four page paper, which was distributed
at the Indiana High School basketball tourney, and the Homecoming
edition of the Collegian were both published under its auspices. Also,
the enlargement and more frequent issuing of the paper has been made
possible by the work of members of the organization.
Besides work in the newspaper field the fraternity is also active in
promoting worthwhile activities on the campus. The members sponsored
a concert given by the Men's Glee Club which was presented at the
Irvington school auditorium March 29.
The Butler chapter cooperated with the DePauw chapter in giving
the annual Sigma Delta Chi Founders Day banquet at the Hotel Lincoln
April 17, at which Meredith Nicholson and the national president of the
fraternity, James A. Stewart, spoke.

'EPRESENTATIVES of the national Greek letter fraternities on the
campus organized in 1920 and received a charter to Sphinx Club from the
Wabash chapter the following year. The membership consists of under-
graduate men who have succeeded in distinguishing themselves in some
form of collegiate activities. The pledge insignia is a black and white rib-
bon, worn on the coat lapel, and the active badge of the organization is a
golden sphinx head.
Sphinx fosters inter-fraternity relationship and endeavors to promote
a spirit of cooperation among fraternities, for the advancement of school
spirit. It arouses interest in campus activities by sponsoring all-school
events. The annual Urbana pilgrimage has been promoted largely by
Sphinx Club, which has charge of the sale of tickets for the Butler-Illinois
At the end of the school year, Sphinx annually awards a trophy to the
member of the football team esteemed the most valuable. The faculty is
responsible for this selection, which is announced at the close of school.

_SLUE KEY founded in 1924 at Gainsville, Florida, established its
twentieth chapter last year at Butler. The organization was started at
the Florida university by B. C. Riley, and became a national fraternity in
February, 1925. Within two and one-half years, it has expanded until it
now has chapters in forty-one colleges and universities. Skulls chapter of
Blue Key is a junior-senior organization, and members are elected on the
basis of achievement and interest in campus activities. They are pledged
in the fall semester and wear the blue and gold ribbons, the insignia of the
club. Service is the fundamental principle, underlying the general purpose
of promoting school spirit and fostering a closer bond of relationship be-
tween the faculty and students. The local chapter was originally founded
in 1920 by Pat Page for the purpose of promoting fellowship among "B"
men and to encourage scholarship especially among the freshmen athletes.
Blue Key and Scarlet Quill have, for several years, cooperated in
sponsoring the activities connected with Home-coming Day. Since this
organization has received its national charter the prestige of the college
in its program of expansion has been greatly increased.

TT HEREVER and whenever Butler is holding a celebration, the Butler
band is always near — attired in its blue uniforms. This year the organiza-
tion, in charge of J. B. Vandaworker, has presented many programmes
which have helped bring the name of Butler before the public's attention.
The band went on a concert tour of Northern Indiana this year and was
well received by its audiences.
More than fifty members are enrolled for this work which has been
placed on the basis of a one hour elective credit arrangement. The band
plays at all the football and basketball games and frequently broadcasts
Butler programmes over WF'BM in addition to the Radio Bureau's weekly
university radio hour.
This year the band inaugurated the policy of presenting its senior
members with Butler sweaters. The first to receive this honor were
Brazier Beecher and Kent Beecher.
At the June Carnival the band followed its usual custom of giving a
concert before the pageant. With Butler at Fairview the band, having
played at the dedication game with Notre Dame at the new Field House,
promises to increase its ranks to the desired hundred mark. Henry
Hebert is student director of the band.

^/AMPUS CLUB was organized in 1922 by the women in the college
residence under the guidance of Dean Butler, sponsor, wth the aim of
promoting good fellowship and scholarship and of upholding the tradi-
tions existing at the dormitory.
The club sponsors social affairs that are unique and attractive. Last
fall the girls gave a clever stunt, entitled "Campus Affairs" on Geneva
Stunt day. At the Melting Pot Bazaar the club placed third with one of
the cleverest booths entered. Dressed as bold pirates they guarded a
treasure chest which was really a grab bag.
Meetings are held each Wednesday evening. Rulings are made by
the club and, after being approved by Dean Butler, are put into effect and
are recognized by the students living in the Residence.
Because Campus Club is open only to women residing in the dormi-
tory, the membership has been restricted by the size of the Residence.
However, with the erection of a new and larger building at Fairview,
Campus Club should grow in size and influence.

DER DEUTSCHE VEREIN
'ER DEUTSCHE VEREIN is an organization composed of twenty-
five students from the German department. The members are chosen by
Professor and Mrs. M. C. Baumgartner on the basis of ability and interest
in the German language. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each
month at the homes of the various members.
The club offers opportunity for practise in the fluency of speaking
German and for acquiring a better understanding of the language. Inter-
esting and well-planned programs consisting of sketches of Germany,
short plays, songs, dialogues and short talks are conducted in German.
Papers are read by members on German traditions and customs, origin of
German folk songs, German literature and lives of German authors.
Apart from the monthly meetings, Der Deutsche Verein produces for
the public a German play. This year "Unter Vies Augn" was given. A
German Christmas party is held annually for the members, and a picnic
outside of town ends the activities of the organization each school year.
This club is sponsored by Professor and Mrs. Baumgartner, Miss
Tulianna Thorman and Miss Violet Beck.

^%ATHEMATICS Club has had two semesters of rather varied ac-
tivity. Perhaps the most outstanding work of the year has been the
presentation of a mathematical pageant in the fall. Written by Miss
Gladys Banes, instructor in the mathematics department, in conjunction
with one of her classes, the pageant was repeated a second time before
the Indiana section of the Mathematical Association of America when it
met here in May.
Meetings of a social and instructive nature are held by the club once
each month. The reading of a paper usually supplies the major part of the
programmes, and musical numbers fill out the evenings' entertainments.
The papers deal with such topics as astronomy, the history of mathematics
and biographies of well known mathematicians. Among those read this
year were one on the "Number System," by Prof. Elijah Johnson, and
one on the "Einstein Theory of Relativity," by Miss Juna Lutz.
Vernon Carlin has been elected president for next year. Gladys

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
NDER the capable direction of. Mr. Franklin Taylor, of the Metro-
politan School of Music, the Girls' Glee Club has gained greater prom-
inence — not only at Butler, but throughout the city and neighboring
towns — than has been attained heretofore. The club, consisting of over
eighty voices, appeared three times each day at the Circle Theater during
Collegiate week from November 12th to the 18th. These performances,
besides interesting the public in Butler affairs, enabled the Glee Club this
year to donate a considerable amount to the Woman's League building
fund. Any girl is eligible to try out for club membership. One hour of
credit has been given for work in the organization since 1926.
The Girls' Glee Club has been consistent throughout its entire exist-
ence in rendering the highest grade of music in the field of choral work.
During the past year, it has appeared before the Veterans of Foreign
Wars at their banquet at the Claypool in December. On April 27th the
girls also sang at the concert given by the Veterans of Foreign Wars at
Caleb Mills Hall. The club opened the Butler Radio Bureau programs
last fall, being the first to broadcast from Butler over WFBM.

MENS GLEE CLUB
LEN'S GLEE CLUB in its concerts in various parts of the state and
in Indianapolis during the past year, ha-s attained a high degree of success,
and has served to interest other communities in Butler. Devoting itself
to the perfection of a program suitable for concert work, the club meets
twice a week for rehearsal, under the supervision of H. E. Winslow.
Members of the club receive one hour of credit for each semester's work.
The first concert of the season was given at the Irvington School of
Music under the auspices of Sigma Delta Chi. During its spring tour,
which opened with a concert in Frankfort, performances were given in
several towns in the north central section of the state. In some of its out-
of-town concerts, a new policy was inaugurated by the club this year. Fol-
lowing the program, the organization which sponsored the concert gave
a dance, for which the music was furnished by the newly formed Glee Club
orchestra, composed of Scott Waldon, Vergil Hebert, Joe Gremelspacher,
Paul Frey, Marvin Finch, Henry Hebert and Mr. Winslow.

ESTABLISHED in 1870, Philokurian is the oldest literary society on
the campus. Founded at Northwestern Christian University to promote
the interests of ministerial students, it was later affiliated with the Demia,
Butler and Athenian literary coed societies and now includes both men and
women in its membership. Students are elected to Philokurian on the
basis of literary merits, and it has been imperative that they live in
In the early days of the society its functions held sway over all other
extra curricular activities. Today its members retain the traditional ideals
of the first Philokurian. This year under the direction of Rodney Per-
kins, president, the members have read several papers and have held
discussions on contemporary writers. Last year they devoted their time
to writers of the past. Meetings are held every week in the Administra-
tion building. A member reads a prepared paper, or the meeting is
given over to debates or literary discussion.
Philo, however, does not devote its entire time to literary subjects.
The meetings have a social air about them that is climaxed once a year at
the annual Philo steak fry.

^ANDWICH CLUB at Butler University, a school replete with Chris-
tian traditions, has had a special significance in striving to preserve and
strengthen a spirit of high ideals and Christian living.
Organized in 1904 for the purpose of preparing its members for
Christian activity and strengthening the bonds between Butler men and
ministerial students, Sandwich Club was then exclusively a men's group.
In April, 1925, it was affiliated with the Oxford Clubs of America, a
national organization with practically the same ideals and was then known
as the Oxford Club. In 1927 the club was merged with the Inner Circle,
an organization for both men and women, and the group assumed its
Bi-weekly luncheons are held and a social gathering is sponsored each

STUDENT TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION
lUTLER University Student Teachers' Association was organized in
1923, drawing its membership from students majoring in the department
of education and wishing to make teaching their profession. Due to its
previous success the association has grown in numbers and interest. It has
created a definite means of contact between students and leaders in the
field of education and has contributed materially in extending the name of
Butler among state school circles, besides the fellowship and interest it
has fostered among its members.
Spirited discussions on subjects relating to pedagogy led by prominent
educators at the regular meetings furnish programmes of interest. Since
every member of the club has had some practical experience in teaching
in the city schools, each one individually is qualified to present a more
accurate experience and gain a greater understanding of the problem than
is possible in any other extracurricular group. An invaluable quality of
service has been rendered to the student teacher in the open forum discus-
sions on imperative problems of the teaching profession.
Under Lee O. Garber, faculty sponsor, the club expects to furnish
assistance in placing Butler graduates in teaching positions throughout the
Butler Student Teachers' Association.

^.OOLOGY Club has been organized this year to foster the interest of
the students, especially freshmen, of the department in the practical and
theoretical research of zoological science. It is an outgrowth of the old
Biology Club. In limiting its membership to the students of the Zoology
department, the club has been able to make its activities more concen-
trated and worthwhile. The faculty members of the department sponsor
the organization and assist greatly in stimulating the interest of their
students. Professor Henry Lane Bruner, head of the Zoology depart-
ment, deserves much credit for the success of the club.
One of the most important functions of the club is the annual award-
ing of a scholarship to the Marine Laboratories at Woods Hole, Massa-
chusetts. The student who receives this award must have proved himself
worthy of the honor by successful pursuits and unusual ability in the
science of zoology. This helps to create and promote an incentive on the
part of each member to strive for greater excellency in zoology. Robert
Pitts won the scholarship this year.

NFORMING the radio public of the happenings and advancements of
the university became such a necessity in 1927 that the Butler Radio
Bureau was established to provide a medium for broadcasting, regularly
each week, a Butler radio hour. Varied programmes ranging from musi-
cal numbers to talks by faculty members serve to fulfil the purpose of the
Bureau in disseminating a broader knowledge of local campus activity.
The Butler radio hour is broadcast every Friday evening over
WFBM, Indianapolis Power and Light radio broadcasting station. The
entire programmes are arranged and presented at the regular hour from
nine until ten by Butler students' except at occasional intervals when prom-
inent men speak in the interest of Butler. It is planned to devote a part
of the programme later to a lecture course, which will be continued from
week to week in the manner of a regular college class. The Butler Band,
the men and women's Glee Clubs, the men's quartet, fraternity musical
talent and a number of individuals have "gone on the air" as a result of
the Bureau's efforts.
Cards and letters have been received from various parts of this and
adjoining states complimenting the programmes presented by the Bureau.

Y. W. C. A.
^OUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION, exists for the
purpose of helping the women of the university to face life with courage
and open-mindedness. During the past year, the leaders of the organiza-
tion have sought to foster the best interests of the school, to meet the
spiritual needs of the student, to encourage thinking and to create true
fellowship among the women.
Believing wisely directed activity to be a vital part of any college
organization, the members of the Y. W. C. A. have attempted to serve in
some manner the entire campus. Each year they have edited the Student
Directory and conducted a second-hand book store. Twelve Butler girls
have been sent to the Geneva and Detroit conferences from the proceeds
of the semi-annual Geneva Stunt Day programmes. The Y. W. C. A. also
sends a representative of the Student Industrial group to the University
of Wisconsin summer school.
Social entertainments are held for the purpose of acquainting all types
and groups of Butler girls with each other and creating a spirit of good
fellowship. At the weekly meetings of the organization, questions, inter-
racial, international, industrial and social are brought before the members
in open forum discussion.

PEN AND PENCIL
^_yONSISTING of those students in the university who are interested
in the development of literary talent, the Pen and Pencil club has been a
potent factor in stimulating the creative effort of the student body. Under
the leadership of Dean Evelyn Butler, the club has developed from a
short story class into a recognized campus organization with stringent
membership requirements. The submission of an original manuscript, ac-
cepted by the club as displaying sufficient ingenuity and effort, is the chief
requisite to membership in the organization.
At the meetings, which are held the first and third Mondays in the
month, the programmes consist of talks on literature by speakers prominent
in the literary world and the consideration of the submitted manuscripts.
Plans are being made and material prepared for the petitioning of Quill,
national college literary organization. It is hoped that a chapter will be
established on the Fairview campus in the near future.
In collaboration with other literary organizations on the campus,
Pen and Pencil aided in the establishment of an official literary magazine,
the "Cocoon." The club is expected to render further assistance next
year when the magazine will assume larger proportions, becoming a

INTERNATIONAL Relations Club since its origin in September, 1928,
has had a large and interested following among students desiring a better
understanding of international political, social and economic affairs. Al-
though organized primarily for those enrolled in the department of His-
tory and Political Science the club is open to others who are interested in
its work. A. D. Beeler, assistant professor of history, who spent several
years in the consular service in France and Italy, is sponsor of the
Meetings of the Club are held at noon, twice monthly. In addition,
during the course of the year evening meetings, open to everyone, are
held in the chapel. Well known authorities, both in and out of the uni-
versity, lecture before the members on topics of current interest in the
field of foreign relations. Members are thus able even in the short
twenty-five minute meetings to obtain an accurate and clear perspective
of the various countries and peoples of the world, especially those with
which the United States come in contact. A corresponding secretary keeps
the club informed of the happenings of college and individual organiza-
tions of similar character.

RGANIZED for all women in school, Woman's League is the most
important of all women's groups. Because of the varied interests of its
members, Woman's League strives to create a unified spirit among
women, to promote a higher moral standard, and to instill in students an
enthusiasm for all worthy activities. Mary Lee Orloff has been president
this year and serving with her are: Ona Boyd, vice-president; Helen
Schmitz, secretary, and Olga Bonke, treasurer.
At its first mass meeting of the year the League awards the fresh-
man scholarship cup to the sophomore girl who maintained the highest
average during her first year. The winner of the cup this year is Mary
Shortly before Christmas the League sponsored the Melting Pot
Bazaar and the Bazaar dance. Each group on the campus has a booth
and the proceeds are turned over to the Woman's building at Fairview
fund. A women's Cotillion was given in the fall by the League, which
also sponsored an all-school dance during the spring semester.
Woman's League was one of the seven organizations to contribute

LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS
ULECTION year to such an organization as the League of Women
Voters naturally stimulates interest among women at Butler, which has
resulted in two semesters of varied work and accomplishments.
The League of Women Voters works in cooperation with city and
state leagues with the purpose in view of centering the attention of women
on politics and straightening out their political problems. Before school
opened in the fall, the officers met with representatives from these leagues
and college units and gained many helpful suggestions for the ensuing
A silver tea was given at the Alpha Chi Omega house at the opening
of school. Trips were made to the Girl's School at Clermont and to the
Juvenile Court. At the State Convention held at the Marott Hotel in
the spring, Edith Ratts and Virginia Flowers, the official Butler delegate,
attended. Mrs. Booth Tarkington Jameson addressed the League on the
subject of "Democratic and Republican Conventions."
Edith Ratts was president of the League this year, and serving with
her were: Virginia Hampton, vice-president; Ethel Mallock, secretary;
and Ellen MacLean, treasurer.

Y. M. C. A.
^OUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION is known inter-
nationally for its splendid service to young men. It is among the oldest
organizations on the campus and was established for the purpose of stimu-
lating a true democratic spirit among the men.
The organization of Y. M. C. A. is divided into three groups which
hold weekly meetings for the discussion of religious books, ideals and life
problems. Aside from the regular meetings, Y. M. C. A. sponsors a num-
ber of freshmen mixers during the school year to acquaint first-year men
with each other and with college life. From the proceeds of Geneva Stunt
Day, given once a year, delegates are sent to the annual summer confer-
ences at Lake Geneva in Wisconsin. This year Y. M. C. A. with the aid
of Y. W. C. A., sponsored a three-day conference on Campus Problems
with Mr. Bruce Curry, widely known as a leader in national Y. M. C. A.
All the work of the group is carried on in cooperation with the city
branch of the organization. Y. M. C. A. has great prospects for the
future since it fills a definite need on the campus in supplying good fellow-
ship and religious inspiration to the men students.

ROVIDING a systematic method of meeting the various demands for
financial support made on the student body and faculty, the Student Budget
has been able to eliminate constant canvassing on the campus. Enter-
prises having no source of income, which previously depended solely on
campus drives for support, receive the necessary appropriations from the
Student Budget. The Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. are granted fixed
amounts annually, and Scarf Club and Chimes receive yearly allotments.
New organizations on the campus are supported by the Budget until they
become independent. The Collegian and Handbook were formerly pub-
lished under the supervision of the Budget Committee, and lately it has
been instrumental in establishing the Men's Union and the Radio Bureau.
Church organizations and missionaries which formerly applied to the
University for subscriptions receive contributions from the budget.
The budget is subscribed by an annual drive beginning on registration
day and continuing until the quota has been reached. No further requests
for funds are made during the year, all petitions being referred to the
Student Budget Committee for action.
The committee, consisting of six members, is elected by a represen-
tative student committee made up of the presidents of all recognized
campus organizations. Prof. Friesner is sponsor and adviser.

LEN'S UNION, the largest non-coed campus activity organization, a
few weeks after the 1927 school year had gotten under way gave the first
mixer for incoming freshmen. This was followed by two all school foot-
ball dances, the "Fairview Follies" (a musical review) and — in collabor-
ation with the Women's League — the June Carnival, which replaced the
customary May Day of previous years. This completed the Union's most
Since its re-organization in 1925 the Union has been interested in
promoting all worthy campus activities, but it was not until this year
under Henry Hebert, president, that it assumed the role of active leader-
ship. The sponsoring of the "Follies" gives the Union the rank of first
place among campus organizations. This revue, which has been the dream
of students for the past decade, was presented at the Murat Theater
April 21 under the direction of Hebert and Joe Gremelspacher.
The ruling body of the Union is the Governing Board, composed of
an executive committee, one representative from each fraternity, five non-
fraternity men and Professor R. C. Friesner, faculty representative. It
is the plan of the Board to erect a Men's Union building at Fairview to
serve as a headquarters for the men on the campus, thus promoting among
them a better spirit of fellowship.

'RIFT, Junior class yearbook for the third consecutive year has been
awarded two first places among the annuals of universities of 2000 enroll-
ment and under. The awards received have been The Art Crafts Guild
Cup and the Central Interscholastic Press Association Award, two highly
esteemed prizes. Since its first publication in 1895, when it contained ap-
proximately eighty pages, the Drift has been gradually enlarging until it
has reached its present proportions. The growth of the yearbook has kept
pace with the growth of the University in preserving a continuous record
(which is portrayed pictorially) of its activities.
As the Collegian gives its staff a working knowledge of the con-
struction of a newspaper, so the Drift gives its staff an insight into the
publication of books.

spirit of modernism which it has attempted to depict by a futuristic art
theme. In an effort to bring the extremities of futurism "down to
earth" — so to speak — so as to render it more intelligible and appreciated,
the staff has artistically portrayed a form of art which avowedly is the
Each member of the art staff is both a student at Butler University
and the John Herron Art Institute. Two hours of credit in commercial
art were given for the work done on the Drift. A class conducted by
M. V. Warner, commercial artist and instructor at the art school, met
once a week for this purpose.
The cover design, end sheet and opening pages of this book were
the creations of Jane Messick, art editor. The Campustry section, which
is an original feature with the 1928 Drift in page make-up, was planned
and arranged by Mary Louise Haugh, Jane Willis and Jane Messick.

IjEGINNING its forty-second year of publication, the Collegian greeted
the campus last fall with an entirely new appearance. Over the summer
vacation it had grown from a five-column to a six-column sheet and
reached the largest proportions it had ever known. This change was
brought about by the efforts of Professor DeForest O'Dell and J. Doug-
las Perry, instructor. Joseph Scheleen was editor-in-chief the first
semester and Joe Cripe was business manager. During the second semester
Robert Harrison became faculty sponsor of the paper and Joseph Helms
was appointed editor-in-chief. The staff of the Collegian has been greatly
increased and is composed of students in the journalism department and
those interested in newspaper work.
At the time of the state high school basketball tournament which was
held in the Butler Field House, the staff put out a twenty-four page edi-
tion of the Collegian. Copies were distributed to students attending from
all over Indiana in order to acquaint them with Butler. The large amount
of advertising in the sheet bespoke the great amount of work Cripe and
his staff had put on the number.

| HE fall semester will find the Collegian taking on a new and larger
aspect. According to plans announced in May by Professor DeForrest
O'Dell, the staff next year will have the added responsibility of publishing
each Monday, transforming the Collegian technically into a college daily.
This development climaxes the gradual evolution of the paper from a
semi-monthly, weekly, bi-weekly, three, four and now five days a week.
It is planned, also, to increase the size of the sheet from six to seven
columns. Several new ideas which have been discussed as possible future
additions include an all-college rotogravure section. This section, of eight
pages, would be furnished by a syndicate containing photographic news of
various colleges throughout the country. Another possible acquirement
will be wire service rights. Through such a service journalism students
would come in contact with an important phase of newspaper work in
handling professional news items. This would be further accomplished
by converting the paper into a Fairview community organ, carrying news
of interest to north side residents. Merchants and citizens of that com-
munity have signified their approval of such a plan.

_ )ESIROUS of giving Butler a magazine that would serve as an expres-
ion of Butler's literary talents, Sigma Delta Chi, national journalistic
fraternity, published the first issue of the Cocoon in June 1927. Austin
Johnson, president of Sigma Delta Chi, was editor-in-chief and Louise
Eleanor Ross and Don Sparks were chosen as his associates. The first
number bore the forewords — "The Cocoon — the embodiment of Butler's
literary life, beginning in a humble form and aspiring to develop into
something fine and beautiful with the passing of years."
The editors have worked out a plan of alternating in editing the
magazine — both compiled the first issue; Sparks the second, Miss Ross
the third, and both again, the fourth. Four issues appear during the year.
The Cocoon desires to encourage creative writing at Butler and is
constantly on the watch for verse, short stories, essays and plays that reveal
distinctive ability. The poems of Lucille Turner and Don Sparks (which
won first prize in the Butler Literary Contest for 1927) were printed
in the June 1927 issue. It is planned to sponsor a literary contest before
the publication of each issue as soon as enough interest is displayed in
the Cocoon. It is hoped by such a plan to "discover" Butler's hidden

This year the book contained the following features: a greeting by
Dr. Aley, a college calendar, and a resume of the entrance requirements.
Also, special sections were devoted to Fairview, the future Butler, and to
athletics. The major portion of the book was taken up by faculty and

NATIONAL COLLEGIATE PLAYERS
ELECTION to Pi Epsilon Delta, the Butler chapter of National Col-
legiate Players, an honorary dramatic fraternity is the highest honor given
on the campus to students who have been outstanding in dramatics. This
group was installed at Butler in 1925 and in the last three years has
exerted a great influence over the school's dramatic activities.
Only juniors and seniors who have participated in a sufficient number
of dramatic activities to total the coveted twenty points are admitted to
membership. The fraternity badge is a golden key wearing the masks of
comedy and tragedy. This year eight wear the golden key. The officers
are Irma Roller, president; Helen Eastland, vice-president; Neil Firestine,
secretary; and James Parker Wheatley, treasurer. Mrs. Eugene Fife is
sponsor of the local group.
The old Butler dramatic club out of which Pi Epsilon Delta grew,
presented several productions, but today the organization comes as a
reward for work done and does not assume definite responsibilities in
regard to play production.

EADING, interpretation, dramatics and oratory constitute the four-
fold idea on which Rido was founded. In the promotion of a greater
interest in these phases of work the club has been very active. Since its
organization the members, who are all enrolled in the public speaking
department, have given plays, pantomines and other productions of
interest in the dramatic line. Meetings are held bi-monthly in chapel on
The membership, which is made up of about thirty students, forms
with Thespis a junior organization to furnish material for the National
Collegiate Players. Because of the valuable training received affiliation
with one or the other of the clubs is almost imperative before the student
can become a member of the higher organization.
Every year the club sponsors theatre parties to the first night per-
formances of the Berkell Players and the Stuart Walker productions.
Rido in collaboration with the National Collegiate Players supports
the inter-collegiate debates and assists in the production of the plays
sponsored by Thespis. A valuable laboratory for students interested in
the presentation and interpretation of readings is offered by the club.

^INCE its organization a year ago Thespis has been the most active
Dramatic organization on the campus. Three plays, "The Climbers,"
"Everyman" and "The New Poor" have been presented before the stu-
dents and another, "Dust of the Road," was awarded first place in the
National Play contest held at Northwestern University, April 19, 20 and
21. The plays all received enthusiastic support from the student body
and the actors displayed exceptional ability in the handling of their parts.
Thespis, which takes its name from the first Greek actor, was
founded for the purpose of organizing the students interested in dramatic
work and as a club to cooperate with the National Collegiate Players.
Besides an ability to act, members are required to take work in the Public
Speaking department. The membership is limited to forty members.
The meetings of the organization are held bi-weekly at the Indiana
College of Music and Fine Arts. Short plays are presented at the meet-
ings and lessons in make-up and theatrical lore are discussed.

MEMBERSHIP in Delta Phi, national women's debating fraternity,
is the highest honor a woman interested in public speaking may receive at
Butler. Since its local founding in 1921, the Alpha chapter has done much
to create and maintain a greater interest in oratory and debating work.
Requirements to election in the organization include membership on
the varsity debating team and participation in at least two intercollegiate
debates. The pledges, who are announced after the close of the debating
season, wear the fraternity colors of gold and white. A white rose is the
flower of the organization.
Under the presidency of Katherine Treadway a much greater interest
in the work of the Public Speaking department is being fostered. No
regular meetings are held by the group, but the members are called
together by the president as the occasion demands.
Although work in the field of speech-making is still in the process of
development at Butler, the efforts for advancement being made by Delta
Phi have aided materially in the success attained thus far.

TAU KAPPA ALPHA
I AU KAPPA ALPHA, national debating fraternity, since its founding
on the Butler campus in 1908, has had as its purpose, the increasing of
interest among students in public speaking, especially by inter-collegiate
men's debating and oratory. Although organized nationally as a coed
fraternity, only men have been permitted membership on the local campus,
Delta Phi having been organized for women.
To only those men who have demonstrated their worth in the field of
public speaking is the honor of membership awarded. Election is based
on the requirement of participation in at least three varsity inter-collegiate
debates. The organization gave the students an insight into their work
this year by giving a partial initiation of their pledges in public. The
neophytes were compelled to mount soap boxes and harangue passers-by in
front of the Administration building.
With John Love as president the fraternity has completed a very
successful year. So much interest has been shown in debating this year
that public congratulations have been extended to the members by Presi-

WOMEN'S DEBATE TEAM
/ALTHOUGH achieving only a fifty per cent average of victories in
their work this year, the women's varsity debating team has completed, on
the whole, a successful year. Only one member of the team remained
from last year's squad, but the members were not hampered by their
The subject for the debates was Resolved: that the Russian Soviet
Government should be recognized by the United States. Research proved
the subject to be somewhat one sided, but the women deserve much credit
for their ability in handling the question in their forensics.
Divided into affirmative and negative squads, each team debated
with colleges and universities in Indiana and nearby states. The affirma-
tive team lost each of its three debates which were held against Miami
University, Purdue University and Wittenberg College. The negatives,
however, won a straight trio of victories in their talks against Purdue
University, Depauw University and Albion College.
The members of the teams were — affirmative: Helen Vennard, Ger-
trude Ball and Helen Schmitz; and the negative: Mrs. Grace Meyer,
Leona Cohen, Katherine Buskin and Thelma Thomas.

MEN'S DEBATE TEAM
RESENTING an impregnable defense and an irresistible and offen-
sive reasoning ability, the Varsity Debating team went through its entire
season without a single defeat. Debating the two subjects, Resolved: that
the United States should cease to protect American foreign private invest-
ments; and, Resolved: that the direct primary system for the nomination
of state and federal officers should be repealed by the several states — the
teams were victorious in ten contests against debaters from some of the
best schools in the country.
Both the negative and affirmative teams were handicapped in that
none of their personnel were members of the team last year. Several of
the men have been engaged in oratory and debating work here and else-
where, but this was their initial attempt at working together.
The affirmative team debated Miami University, University of the
City of Cincinnati, University of the City of Detroit, Wabash and Buck-
nell Colleges. The negative team spoke against DePauw University,
University of the City of Detroit, Earlham, and the College of Oakland

NTER-FRATERNITY Council has for its purposes the promotion
of scholarship among men's fraternities and the administration of extra-
curricular and social activities for the groups represented. It regulates
rushing and aims to serve Butler through fraternity organization. Mem-
bership is composed of one junior and one senior representative from each
of the national fraternities on the campus and from local groups having
at least twenty-five members. This is an important organization in the
fraternity life of the college and does a great deal to aid in preserving
cordial relations among fraternities at Butler and to dispose of the com-
mon interests and business of the campus groups in a satisfactory manner.
This year, the council sponsored an inter-fraternity dance which was
held January 22nd at the Columbia Club. It has also sponsored and regu-
lated all of the intra-mural sport contests. Wendell Brown and George
Cecil composed the basketball committee. Phi Delta Theta won the
inter-fraternity basketball championship this year and was presented with
a silver loving cup by the Council. Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity was the
winner of the track relay, also sponsored by the Council, and was pre-
sented with a statue of a runner as a trophy of championship. Frank
Schmedel and John Daily composed the committee in charge of track. The
Council also sponsored the baseball league. It is planned to award a lov-
ing cup to the fraternity having the highest scholastic average next year.

AN-HELLENIC Association, organized in 1914, has for its purpose
the cooperation of women's fraternities for the good of the college and
all its women students, to benefit the fraternities of the college and to
unify the interests of the fraternity and non-fraternity women. Member-
ship is composed of one Junior and one Senior representative, chosen in
April to serve one college year, from each of the national fraternities rep-
resented in the institution and from such local organizations as Pan-
Hellenic members may see fit to admit.
The Association is a very important factor in the life of the college
and does a great deal to unify school spirit, to regulate rush conditions,
to uphold faculty regulations for scholastic and social activity, and to
create a spirit of fellowship. Some of the important accomplishments of
the organizations this year have been the Pan-Hellenic Formal Dance
held March 10 at the Columbia Club, which was attended by about two
hundred couples, and a bridge party held January 7th at the Propylaeum.
The Association demonstrated its worth to the campus by a liberal gift of
$200.00 to Butler Women's League toward the building fund for the new
Women's Building at Fairview.
Meetings are held at the various chapter houses the first Monday of
each month. The officers rotate among the representatives of the various
fraternities in the order of the dates of establishment of the respective
chapters at Butler.

BUILT FOR THE AGES
IN supplying the Indiana Limestone
for the beautiful new Arthur Jordan
Memorial, this company has largely
contributed to the rugged permanence
of the building.
No building material defies time and
the elements better than Indiana Lime-
stone. In all temperatures, in driving
snow and blistering heat, this remark-
able stone maintains its native beauty.
We are proud of our share in the com-
pletion of the new Butler, proud of our
company and its modern facilities and
proud of Indiana Limestone.

"RELIABLE" HAMS AND BACON
Our "Reliable" Hams and Bacons are made from choice corn-fed hogs.
After they are selected and trimmed, they are cured slowly by a special
mild-cure formula which insures mildness, sweetness and an unusual deli-
cate flavor. When fully cured, they are carefully smoked with hard-wood
smoke which gives them a rich brown color and an appetizing smoked taste.
You'll find a richness of flavor, tenderness, sweetness and mildness in
Kingan's Hams and Bacon not found in any others.
Choose them during your college days and in the days that come after

past. In idle moments it is comforting
to permit the mind to shine back on
distant fields of pleasant experiences
Thus, this memory book will serve you
and prove the source of real future
pleasure. For Stafford combines these
elements with the artistry, the quality ;
and the workmanship which entitle it, i
to bear the phrase . . .

AN expression of gratitude is a fitting close to every ex-
perience. The 1928 DRIFT is most grateful to all who
assisted in compiling this book; to the Stafford Engrav-
ing and Mitchell Printing Companies for their coopera-
tion and service; to the staff members for their editorial
aid; to Joseph Scheleen, Scott Waldon and Gerald Bow-
man, who contributed to the athletic section; to Louise
Eleanor Ross for her assistance in copy editing; and
lastly but largely to the tireless efforts of
the art staff in making this a
DRIFT of, by and for
